Identification and Analysis of Queue Spillovers in City Street Networks

  title={Identification and Analysis of Queue Spillovers in City Street Networks},

  journal={IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems},
We propose a methodology for identifying queue spillovers in city street networks with signalized intersections using data from conventional surveillance systems, such as counts and occupancy from loop detectors. The key idea of the proposed methodology is that when spillovers from a downstream link block vehicle departures from the upstream signal line, queues discharge at rates smaller than the saturation flow. The application of the methodology on an arterial site and the comparison with… CONTINUE READING
