Abstract

In this paper, a real time stochastic optimal control method for traffic signals of asymmetrical intersection is proposed. A modified cellular automaton (CA) traffic model and Bayesian network (BN) model are used to predict the traffic jams. Here, the calculation for priori probabilistic of outflows at different traffic signals is modified based on the actual situation. In addition, PSO algorithm is used to search optimal traffic signals based on the stochastic model. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is shown through simulations at an asymmetrical intersection using a micro-traffic simulator.
