Signal offsets are a signal timing parameter that have a substantial impact on arterial travel times. The traditional technique is to optimize offsets using an offline software package, implement the settings, and then possibly observe field operations. It is not uncommon for a traffic engineer to fine tune the settings by observing the arrivals of platoons(More)
A wide variety of alternative optimization objective functions have been reported in the literature such as minimizing stops, minimizing delay, and maximizing arrivals on green. There is extensive literature evaluating these alternative objective functions using models. This paper reports on the field deployment of these alternative optimization functions,(More)
Decisions on whether to coordinate adjacent intersections are currently made by rules of thumb, coupling indices based on ratios of volume to distance, and modeled traffic flows. As high resolution event data from signalized intersections becomes more readily available, it becomes possible to analyze actual link vehicle flows to better characterize whether(More)
