R.T. van Katwijk, B. De Schutter, and J. Hellendoorn, "Look-ahead traffic-adaptive signal control," Proceedings of the 6th European Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS'07), Aalborg, Denmark, 12 pp., June 2007. Paper 2417.
The design of a look-ahead traffic-adaptive control system is as well a science as an art. Along the way compromises have to be made to end up with a workable system that is not only able to come up with good signal timings, but also to deliver them on time. We propose a taxonomy of look-ahead traffic-adaptive control algorithms based both on their underlying principles and the compromises that were made to come up with a workable, albeit less optimal system. A new hybrid algorithm is subsequently defined that combines the strengths of all current approaches and incorporates constraint programming techniques.
