Adaptive Signal Control Algorithms for Connected Systems

The proposed research will explore deployment of connected vehicles (CVs) data for traffic signal control. It will aim at communication protocols both connectivity, type of data, data security, and detection. Models will depend on market penetration, coverage, and inference based parameter estimation (e.g., delay, queues). For computational efficiency using event based data will be investigated. Different information types will be researched for reliable and robust control. What other redundant system is necessary for short to mid-term deployment will be investigated. Reliability of the vehicle information will be answered. What type of coverage is needed, that is, cost of purchasing or maintaining thus efficient allocation. Accommodation of other modes such as trucks, transit, pedestrians, bikes, emergency vehicles will be checked. This project proposes to develop signal control algorithms from connected roadway users (motorized and nonmotorized) considering the information shared in two way communications (i.e., vehicle-to-infrastructure, infrastructure-to-vehicle, infrastructure-to-infrastructure, and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2I, I2V, I2I, and V2V)). This research aims to develop implementation ready signal control algorithms from connected vehicles, develop algorithms with data defined under current architecture, address computational efficiency and different modes, test algorithms using microscopic simulations, set up experiments on the testbed, test algorithms, and report results and findings.
