This paper focuses on the use of Petri nets (PN) to model the control of signalized intersections. The application of PN to an eight-phase traffic signal controller is illustrated. Structural analysis of the control PN model is performed to demonstrate how the model enforces the traffic operation safety rules. This is followed by a discussion of why this(More)
To design a transportation sensor network, the decision-maker needs to determine what sensor investments should be made, as well as when, how, where and with what technologies. This paper focuses on locating a limited set of traffic counting stations and automatic vehicle identification readers in a network so as to maximize the expected information gain(More)
An agent-based model of intersection control is presented. Drivers make payments to movement managers so that they can pass through the intersection. Movement managers collect fees from arriving drivers, receive voluntary contributions from those same drivers, and participate in a bidding process overseen by the municipality which determines which movement(More)
44 We consider the problem of finding optimal sensor locations on a traffic network so as to characterize 45 system use overall. We study the problem under two practical scenarios. In the first scenario, we assume 46 there is a given number of sensors (p) that we need to locate on the highway network. In this context, the 47 problem is to find a collection(More)
