This paper investigates the issue of urban traffic signal control using a real time optimization model for signalized areas proposed in the related literature. The adopted model is modified to take into account the traffic scenarios, the different types of vehicles in the area, as well as pedestrians. The technique is applied to a real case study, consisting of two coordinated intersections located in the urban area of Bari (Italy). On the basis of traffic observations, optimal selection of the phases in the semaphoric cycle is performed under different congestion scenarios. Results show the ability of the strategy to minimize the vehicle queue lengths in the area.

Abstract

This paper investigates the issue of urban traffic signal control using a real time optimization model for signalized areas proposed in the related literature. The adopted model is modified to take into account the traffic scenarios, the different types of vehicles in the area, as well as pedestrians. The technique is applied to a real case study, consisting of two coordinated intersections located in the urban area of Bari (Italy). On the basis of traffic observations, optimal selection of the phases in the semaphoric cycle is performed under different congestion scenarios. Results show the ability of the strategy to minimize the vehicle queue lengths in the area.
