On-line Traffic Signal Control Scheme with Real-time Delay Estimation Technology


This paper presents an on-line signal control scheme integrated with the real-time intersection delay estimation technology. The primary goal of this study is to design a complementary optimization module to the existing controller to minimize the total delay experienced by traffic and improve the system performance at the signalized intersections. This paper proposes a feedback control algorithm that optimizes the signal timing plan based on delay estimated via vehicle re-identification technology. Main thrust of the algorithm is on-line control capability utilizing direct delay measures. A description of overall signal control system architecture and optimization algorithm is given in this paper. Extensive simulation experiments are preformed with a high-performance microscopic traffic simulation program, Paramics, and the preliminary results have proved the promising properties of our proposed system.
