Abstract

In this paper, we develop a queuing model for a traffic-adaptive strategy to control a 2-phase intersection. The strategy is an approximation of the RHODES strategy [1], which essentially switches to next phase when the served queue clears. In fact, Newell was the first to compare such a strategy with rolling horizon using a continuous-time formulation [2]. This model can be used to analyze vehicular delays and queue distributions at an intersection with a two-phase signal, where the vehicle arrival process is Poisson, for both fixed timing signal control and traffic-adaptive signal control. Numerical results for the two control strategies are provided and compared.
