Road users still encounter unnecessary delays due to inefficient traffic control in urban traffic networks. These delays are ever-increasing and have large environmental and economic consequences. In the Netherlands, most intersections are controlled using actuated controllers, which respond directly to the current traffic demand obtained from...

Urban areas with many daily commuters often experience a reduction in traffic flow during rush hours. In some urban areas where this reduction in traffic flow occurs, there are popular destinations for leisure that have multiple large parking facilities. Vehicles searching for vacant parking spots drive at a lower vehicle speed, reducing the...

Traffic signals in a coordinated network normally use a common cycle length which remains constant at all times, including when there is a request for priority from a public transport vehicle. This enables green waves to be maintained effectively but can limit the signals' ability to promptly serve the prioritised vehicle....

Signalized urban intersections are bottlenecks for traffic and cause congestion. To improve traffic signal plans, research efforts have been made to create self-adaptive traffic controllers, i.e. controllers which adapt in real-time to the current traffic demand based on connected vehicle data. Past research on self-adaptive controllers has...

Traffic congestion is a problem of tremendous size that affects many people. Using Reinforcement Learning to find a light control policy can ease traffic congestion and decrease travel time for vehicles. This paper specifically looks at the effect of using different reward functions for training agents. We highlight how the learnabilty of a...

One of the most important bottlenecks that contributes to the congestion of traffic is nonoptimal traffic signal control. Techniques that have been investigated to optimise traffic signal control have been focused on improving the traffic flow through individual intersections. However, if intersections are optimised based on only reducing local...

Fixed-time control and vehicle-actuated control are two main signaling strategies implemented at intersections for urban traffic management. The timing and structure of the controllers are usually designed optimally based on average historical demand patterns at the intersection. Under the premise of performance quality assurance, both fixed...

To evaluate traffic signal controllers, and vehicle-actuated traffic signal controllers in particular, in terms of how they are performing with respect to the road authority’s policies on traffic flow and accessibility, traffic safety, and environmental factors, several methods are developed in practice. However, in scientific literature, little...

Permitted conflicts at (vehicle-actuated) signalised intersections are widely researched, though with the main focus on the traffic safety implications, because with permitted conflicts, two or more conflicting streams at a signalised intersection receive green at the same time, and thus meet at the conflict zone, as opposed to protected...

Traffic signal controllers have been around since the late sixties of the 19th century and since then they have played an increasing role in (urban) traffic management. Over the years many different algorithms have been developed and in Dutch practice actuated control is mostly used. Actuated control and other similar approaches apply variable...

For some on-ramps, which cause congestion on the motorway, it is not possible to install a ramp metering system for geometric or other reasons. But sometimes it is possible to meter traffic with the traffic lights of nearby intersections in such a way that the situation on the motorway improves and on the urban network the situation does not get...

Bad traffic conditions can be improved by regulating traffic demand and network capacity. Dynamic Traffic Management (DTM) systems allocate temporal and spatial utilization of infrastructures and vehicle fleets by means of dynamic signals. By timely response to changing traffic conditions DTM goals, in terms of effective, safe and reliable use...

This master-thesis analyzes the deployment of congestion protection strategies to improve the bus running time through a specific case; an intersection in the city of Boston, United States of America. At this juncture two bus routes, operated by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (the transit authority), suffer from congestion...
