The prediction of the dispersion of traffic platoons downstream of signals

  • R. J. Salter


The minimisation of delay by the adjustment of the offset of the green signal depends on the ability to predict the arrival rate of vehicles at the stop line. In a network controlled by traffic signals the platoons of vehicles travelling towards the stop line will have been discharged initially from a traffic signal upstream. For this reason the prediction of the dispersion of vehicles downstream from traffic-signal approaches is of considerable importance.
