Dynamic Traffic Control : Decentralized and Coordinated Methods

  title={Dynamic Traffic Control : Decentralized and Coordinated Methods},
  author={Isaac Porche and St{\'e}phane Lafortune},
ALLONS-D is a decentralized real-time traffic control scheme. Through simulations, the scheme is shown to be suitable for adaptive control of an isolated intersection. An efficient tree searching algorithm, constrained only by a maximum and minimum green time per phase is used to find a traffic signal plan that minimizes delay. Differences betweenALLONS-D & other real-time traffic control schemes, such as OPAC, are described. The scheme can also be used to reduce travel times on transit routes… CONTINUE READING
