An Adaptive Signal Control Method with Optimal Detector Locations
AbstractThe adaptive traffic signal control system is a key component of intelligent transportation systems and has a primary role in effectively reducing traffic congestion. The high costs of implementation and maintenance limit the applicability of the adaptive traffic signal control system, especially in developing countries. This paper proposes a low-cost adaptive signal control method that is easy to implement. Two detectors are installed in each vehicle lane at an optimal location determined by the proposed method to detect green and red redundancy time, based on which the original signal timing is adjusted through a signal controller. The proposed method is evaluated through case studies with low and high volume-to-capacity ratio intersections. The results show that the proposed adaptive signal control method can significantly reduce total traffic delay at intersections. View Full-Text
