Traffic light control: A case study

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This article is devoted to traffic flow networks including traffic lights at intersections. Mathematically, we consider a nonlinear dynamical traffic model where traffic lights are modeled as piecewise constant functions for red and green signals. The involved control problem is to find stop and go configurations depending on the current traffic volume. We propose a numerical solution strategy and present computational results.
