Max - pressure Controller for Stabilizing the Queues in 6 Signalized Arterial Networks

Abstract

1 The problem of arterial signal control is considered here. Urban intersections face serious congestion 2 problems and at the same time the installation and maintenance of centralized systems is deemed 3 cumbersome. A decentralized approach which is relatively simple to implement is studied here. The 4 recently proposed max-pressure controller, which provably stabilizes the queues of arterial traffic systems, 5 is tested in simulations. Different modifications of the controller are analyzed and compared under the 6 same demand scenarios. The mesoscopic model used for the simulation experiments is an extended 7 version of the store-and-forward model and emulates the arterial traffic network as a queuing system. The 8 obtained results demonstrate the efficiency of max-pressure algorithm, which, under certain conditions, 9 can stabilize all queues of the system. 10 11
