The Impact of Detector Placement on Signalized Intersection Performance

This research aims to scientifically prove that vehicle actuated signal control can actually be a reasonable substitute for a fixed time signal control, which will enhance the overall signalized intersection performance when the timing parameters and detector placement distances are designed properly. For this purpose, a semi-actuated signal control strategy on an appropriately chosen signalized intersection was designed. Since the appropriate detector placement is considered to be one of the significant parameters of the vehicle actuated control operations, this paper deals with the impact of the detector placement on the overall intersection performance expressed by the delays and the level of service achieved.
