Study on Regional Traffic Control Optimization Based on State Analysis
The aim of regional traffic control optimization is to find the optimal design parameters while thinking over the route choice of users. This problem can be formulated as a bi-level programming program. In the program, signal control scheme and user equilibrium traffic assignment are optimized in the upper and lower level respectively. The solution procedure developed with the genetic algorithm has been tested with an example of factual road network.Numerical experiment verified the proposed model is quite promising for use in design of regional signal control.
