Applications of the urban traffic control strategy TUC. (English) Zbl 1142.90348
Summary: Despite the long-lasting research and developments in the field of urban traffic control systems, the continuously increasing mobility requirements urge for solutions that will release urban areas from the serious congestion problems and their consequences. From the control point of view, this may be translated into the employment of traffic-responsive systems that respond automatically to the prevailing traffic conditions. This is the aim of the signal control strategy TUC, whose basic philosophy, design methodology, characteristics and application results under both simulated and field conditions are presented in this paper. Based on a store-and-forward type of mathematical modelling and using well-known methodological tools from Automatic Control Theory, the TUC strategy addresses in a simple but efficient way, as demonstrated from the applications so far, the problem of co-ordinated, traffic-responsive signal control in large-scale urban networks.
