Abstract

The paper outlines the objectives and approach along with simulation results of the recent extensions of the traffic signal control strategy TUC (Traffic-responsive Urban Control). Based on well-known methods of the Automatic Control theory, TUC allows for the traffic-responsive coordinated signal control of large-scale urban networks aimed to be particularly efficient under saturated traffic conditions. Simulation investigations of the extended TUC application in a large part of the urban network of Southampton, UK, by use of the METACOR macroscopic simulator, demonstrate the efficiency of the new signal control strategy.
