Urban traffic systems that possess system states that are distributed, parallel, deterministic, stochastic, discrete, and continuous are well suited for a Petri net (PN) approach. The literature survey conducted in this paper shows the vast applications of PNs in modeling and simulation, analyzing and evaluating performances, intelligent control and(More)
Research on developing mathematical and simulative models to evaluate performance of signalized arterials is still ongoing. In this paper, an integrated model (IM) based on Rakha vehicle dynamics and LWR model is proposed. The IM which imitates actuated performance measurement in signalized arterials is described using continuous timed Petri net with(More)
INTRODUCTION The Patient Safety Leadership Walkabout (PSLWA) programme is a commonly employed tool in the West, in which senior leaders visit sites within the hospital that are involved in patient care to talk to healthcare staff about patient safety issues. As there is a lack of perspective regarding PSLWA in Asia, we carried out an evaluation of its(More)
The LWR theory has been notable in modeling traffic progression. However, its reliance on a fundamental diagram and the shock wave theory to evaluate performance of signalized intersection is a rather tedious procedure. Hence, in this paper, we propose an integration of Rakha vehicle dynamics model to "assist" the LWR model which is described using VCPN to(More)
which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Abstract Finger prostheses are devices developed to emulate the functionality of natural human fingers. On top of their aesthetic appearance in terms of shape, size and colour, such biomimetic devices require a high level of dexterity.(More)
Platoon based traffic flow models form the underlying theoretical framework in traffic simulation tools. They are essentially important in facilitating efficient performance calculation and evaluation in urban traffic networks. For this purpose, a new platoon-based macroscopic model called the LWR-IM has been developed in [1]. Preliminary analytical(More)
