THIRD GENERATION CONTROL SOFTWARE. URBAN TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM (UTCS) SOFTWARE SUPPORT PROJECT. VOLUME I. SYSTEM OVERVIEW

This report presents the results of the research performed to date on the Third Generation UTCS Software (3GC) System. This system provides on-line cycle-free traffic signal optimization. This report is comprised of six volumes which detail the third generation software for undersaturated conditions (CYRANO) as implemented in Washington, DC. The algorithm for developing signal timing patterns on-line for saturated conditions (CIC/QMC) is only described functionally because it requires further development. This volume (Vol. 1) contains the following topics: Third generation control-system description; 3GC design approach; Data base configurations; Priority interrupt system; Data processing equipment.
