Sustainability Assessment of Cooperative Vehicle Intersection Control at Urban Intersections with Low Volume Condition
In this study, sustainability of the cooperative vehicle intersection control (CVIC) algorithm realizing wireless communications between vehicles, and between vehicles and infrastructure at urban signalized intersections was assessed. In addition, its performance was compared with an actuated control (AC) developed by the state of the practice program, Synchro, based on a microscopic traffic simulation model, VISSIM, at a low volume condition scenario. The simulation results indicated that the CVIC algorithm significantly improved vehicular delay, fuel consumption and emissions, when compared to those of Synchro.
