The dynamic behavior of a group of traffic signals controlling a network of intersections is a complex discrete event system that can be modeled by Petri nets. The approach used in this paper proposes a components-based design, which increases modularity, reduces complexity and is a good practice according to modern Systems Engineering. The main system elements are specified based on the proposed Petri net component with time intervals associated to places. The specified models are simulated… CONTINUE READING
