Traffic Light Intelligent Regulation Using Infrastructure Located Sensors
This paper presents a central station controlling the traffic flow of an intersection. In the proposed scenario autonomously driven and manually driven vehicles are mixed. The objective is to regulate both types of vehicles. Autonomously driven ones are controlled via wireless LAN communications; the autonomous vehicles send their positions and wait for the permission to traverse the intersection. The manually driven cars are detected in certain positions and controlled using the traffic lights. This paper presents the main idea implementation and shows the initial tests. After the discussion of the test results, some alternatives and future work lines are also exposed.
