arterial coordination control buses coordination maximum bandwidth mixed-integer-linear programming
Considering the difference in driving parameters of buses and social vehicles on the arterial, an arterial traffic signal coordination model that takes into account social vehicles and buses on the basis of the maximum bandwidth is proposed. By using the pre-set parameters of a common cycle, green/red duration and known parameters of bus dwell time distribution, link length and vehicle speed and solving the mixed-integer-linear programming and optimizing the signal offsets, the model obtains the signal control parameters of the green bands both of social vehicles and buses. Finally, taking Wangjiang Road in Hefei as an example, simulation and evaluation are carried out by VISSIM. The results show that the new model has 15.2% and 13.2% reduction in average person delay and number of stops, respectively, compared with the traditional coordinated control method.
