1 INTEGRATING SIGNAL AND LANE CONTROL Edward Lieberman, P.E. Jinil Chang, Ph. D Annual Meeting Panel 5: Emerging Technologies June 9, 2006

2 2006 Annual Meeting - Panel 5: Emerging Technologies Basic Principles There are strong interactions among geometric configuration and signal timing plans which influence traffic performance Treating these elements as an integrated system can yield optimal, adaptive lane allocation and signal-timing plans that are responsive to changing conditions

5 Intersection Design and Control Given1. Estimate traffic volumes, by movement ROW, Budget constraints Develop2. Approach configurations Rules: 100 vph, etc. Assert/3. Signal Cycle Length Compute4. Signal Phasing Plans Compute5. Signal Phase Durations 6. Signal Offsets A sequential “Waterfall” process

6 2006 Annual Meeting - Panel 5: Emerging Technologies For a given approach width, it is possible to design a number of different lane-use configurations. For a given approach width, it is possible to design a number of different lane-use configurations. Each can support several [different] signal phases and durations. Each can support several [different] signal phases and durations. How can we determine the best combination of approach configurations, signal phasing plan and signal timing for all time periods?

14 2006 Annual Meeting - Panel 5: Emerging Technologies Summary 1. We can evaluate combinations of approach configurations, signal phasing and timing plans for different time periods. 2. We can extend adaptive control to include dynamic lane allocation responsive to changing traffic demand patterns over the course of a day.
