Optimization and Control of Urban Traffic Networks
- Assignment (traffic)
The allocation of traffic volumes to routes.
A road with two or more intersections.
Time interval in an arterial progressive system during which vehicles can travel unimpeded.
A device which controls the sequence and duration of indications displayed by traffic signals.
The establishment of a definite timing relationship between adjacent traffic signals.
- Cycle time
The time required for one complete sequence of signal indications.
- Delay (traffic)
The time lost by vehicle(s) due to traffic interference or control devices.
- Detector (traffic)
A device to detect the presence or passage of a vehicle in the roadway.
- Flow (traffic)
The rate at which vehicles cross a given line on the road; the number of vehicles per unit of time.
The time interval between successive vehicle crossings of a given line on the road.
- Intelligent transportation system
The addition of information and communications technology to enhance...
