RFID Enabled Signal Priority Strategies for Bus Operations
This paper involves a study of signal priority strategies for bus operations using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology enabled devices. An actual suburban network of the Clementi area of Singapore, which including several signalized intersections, was used for microscopic traffic simulations conducted in this study. Based on the experimental results, the proposed system has the potential to improve public bus service level by reducing congestion of bus traffic flow through street intersections.
