Evaluation and Simulation of New Roundabouts Traffic Parameters by Aimsun Software

Evaluation and Simulation of New Roundabouts Traffic Parameters by Aimsun Software

New roundabouts are innovation and revolutionary in roundabout design, with the risk of incidents in these roundabouts far less than traditional common roundabouts. These types of roundabouts control the traffic flow at the entrance and exit of the roundabout, with the guidance of drivers to isolated lines before entering the roundabout and guidance to the spiral lines inside the roundabout as channelized. Another advantage of these roundabouts is the much more balanced division of traffic flows than traditional ones. In Iran, in view of the many problems of capacity, flow and safety of intersections and intersections, this type of roundabout can be very useful in certain conditions. In this research, how these roundabouts are compared and also the comparison of different input capacities based on the origin - destination demand matrix for new roundabouts and common roundabouts of two lanes with the help of Aimsun traffic simulation software have been investigated. For this purpose, the values of traffic indicators of delay time, density, flow, stop time and travel time of computer simulations for new roundabouts and common roundabouts have been investigated and compared. According to the demand matrix of the origin-destination models loaded in the software and comparisons done, the optimal model for the highest capacity and the lowest delay time and travel time is presented. In this simulation, 8 to 16 percent increase in traffic flow and a decrease of 34 to 59 percent for travel time and delay time in the new roundabouts is shown in comparison with the common two-lane roundabouts.

Research on Bus Priority Control on Non-coordinated Phase Based on Transmodeler——A Case Study of Changjiang Road in Huangdao District of Qingdao

1) Transmodeler software is a multi-function traffic simulation package developed by the United States Caliper company for urban traffic planning and simulation. The specific flow of the bus priority simulation on the non-coordinated phase of the Changjiang Road by Transmodeler is shown in the Figure.2. The distance between the five intersections of the green belt is 350m, 270m, 450m, 245m respectively, the loss time of the green light for each phase is 4s, the common cycle of the signal is 94s, the velocity of the green band is 47.5Km/h, and the two directions of the bandwidth is 25s, and the direction of the Changjiang Road is the direction of coordinated phase. The bus flow detector is set in the import of the intersection before the stop line 80m. And the bus priority control on the coordinated phase also includes two control modes of lately breaking green light and early turning on green light. The lane saturation rate set in the Transmodeler is 2000pcu/h, the average passenger loaded by bus is 30 people and by car is 1.5 people, the conversion rate of bus is 2 to the standard car. The current basic flow of intersections in the Changjiang Road is captured by the video device and acquired by algorithm. In order to verify and evaluate the benefit of implementing bus priority on the non-coordinated phase of the main road signal, this paper selects the per capita delay, the total delay, the average delay and the total parking number output by Transmodeler as the evaluation index.

NCHRP SYNTHESIS 403. Adaptive Traffic Control Systems: Domestic and Foreign State of Practice. A Synthesis of Highway Practice

signal timing plans, survey respondents indicated that ATCSs are only tools for traffic management and they need to be supervised and controlled by skilled engineering staff. Proper training and acquisition and retention of expertise within an agency were reported as the most important factors for allevi- ating institutional barriers for ATCS deployment. ATCS opera- tions are often not perceived as being difficult; however, it appears that ATCS users are not often given the opportunity to learn how to fully operate their systems. One of the reported operational problems indicated a lack of the basic knowledge for operating an ATCS. A majority of the ATCS users rely on in-house expertise, which is more an indication of not having adequate resources to hire outside support than that ATCS users are fully trained to control and operate their systems. In general, ATCS users would like to acquire additional expertise; however, the agencies do not have enough financial resources to acquire comprehensive training, and most of the agencies are short staffed. ATCSs are considered more operationally demanding than conventional traffic signal systems; however, agencies are not able to support these systems in the same way they support conventional traffic signal systems. Unlike con- ventional systems that are maintenance-intensive, ATCSs require more emphasis on the expertise necessary to operate their sophisticated operations. This switch in the type of labor (from maintenance to operations), which is needed to support proper ATCS operations, is often not recognized by an agency until the ATCS is already deployed. This inability to recognize the need for additional operational expertise in a timely man- ner can adversely affect the ATCS performance. If the agency is disappointed with the performance, it will be reluctant to expand on the existing system or to procure new ATCSs.

From Automated to Manual - Modeling Control Transitions with SUMO

From Automated to Manual - Modeling Control Transitions with SUMO

In the present paper we have described several extensions, which have been implemented into SUMO in order to reflect mixed traffic conditions, where automated and manual vehicles coexist in one scenario. More specifically, we have implemented an ACC model, which is often applied to model automated controllers (Milanés & Shladover, 2014; Xiao, Wang, & van Arem, 2017) and a generic mechanism to impose perception errors upon an arbitrary car-following model. Further, we have presented simulation results for two scenarios where the new models have been applied to evaluate the effects of different TM measures for transition areas, where an increased amount of ToCs can be expected to occur. These results suggest that both cases bear the potential for considerable benefits if the TM is applied. In the simulation the TMC significantly increased either traffic safety (see Section 3.1) or traffic efficiency (see Section 3.2).

Abstract A wireless Ad-hoc network consists of wireless

Abstract A wireless Ad-hoc network consists of wireless

Our protocol evaluations are based on the simulation using OPNET simulator. The scale up network model consists of thirty nodes distributed randomly in a space of 250m X 250m. The channel speed of the wireless LAN is also set to 2Mbps. The simulation parameters have been reported in Table 1. Fig. 2 is a snapshot of the proposed network model considers for simulation. In order to enable direct, fair comparisons between the protocols, it was critical to challenge the protocols with identical loads and environmental conditions. Each run of the simulator accepts as input a scenario file that describes the exact motion of each node and the exact sequence of packets originated by each node, together with the exact time at which each change in motion or packet origination is to occur. We pre-generated 35 different scenario files with varying movement patterns and traffic loads (FTP), and then ran all three routing protocols against each of these scenario files. Since each protocol was challenged in an identical fashion, we can directly compare the performance results of the three protocols. For all simulations, the same movement models were used, and the number of traffic sources was fixed at 30. Fig. 2 shows a model of nodes used to simulate different ad hoc network protocols.

Design & Simulation of Improved Active Power Filter for Renewable Energy Power Applications

Design & Simulation of Improved Active Power Filter for Renewable Energy Power Applications

The compensation effectiveness of the active power filter is corroborated in a 2 kVA experimental setup. A six-pulse rectifier was selected as a nonlinear load in order to verify the effectiveness of the current harmonic compensation. A step load change was applied to evaluate the transient response of the dc voltage loop. Finally, an unbalanced load was used to validate the performance of the neutral current compensation. Because the experimental implementation was performed on a dSPACE I/O board, all I/O Simulink blocks used in the simulations are 100% compatible with the dSPACE system capabilities. The complete control loop is executed by the controller every 20 μs, while the selected switching state is available at 16 μs. An average switching frequency of 4.64 kHz is obtained.

Traffic Management and Network Control Using Collaborative On-line Simulation

Traffic Management and Network Control Using Collaborative On-line Simulation

chitecture is mainly composed of autonomous on-line simula- tors which continuously monitor and model the network con- ditions and topology. Based upon the on-line model of traffic and topology, the simulators can execute simulations to eval- uate the performance of the network for a given set of proto- col parameters. The assumption is that network control proto- cols (e.g.: traffic management, routing protocols) are sensitive to traffic loads and a subset of their parameters. The goal then is to have the on-line simulation system use sophisticated parameter search methods to search for better parameter settings applica- ble to the current traffic and topology mix. In other words, the simulation system can support continuous tuning of the network based upon the on-line modeling, parameter search and simu- lation capabilities. The on-line simulation scheme uses a best- effort parameter search strategy whose emphasis is not on “full” optimization, but on continuously and increasingly moving the system towards a “better” operating point. And in this sense, on-line simulation equips the network management infrastruc- ture with pro-active, dynamic and automated management ca- pabilities.

Position based Adaptive Impedance Controller Design for Lower Limb Rehabilitation Robot

Position based Adaptive Impedance Controller Design for Lower Limb Rehabilitation Robot

The purpose of active training of the affected limb is to strengthen the muscle strength and endurance of the affected limb. In the control process, the impedance control algorithm with better human-computer flexibility is used to control the interaction between the robot and the patient. In the active training, it is necessary to formulate a suitable human-computer interaction trajectory according to the comprehensive assessment results of the patient's physical state, so that the patient can prolong the exercise time of the patient as much as possible and ensure the rehabilitation training effect. The normal person's lower limb output trajectory approximates the sinusoidal curve trajectory during treadmill exercise. This trajectory is the most comfortable trajectory of the human body after optimal adjustment of the human brain. Therefore, in this paper, the resistance of the lower limbs of the patient is set to the trajectory in the form of sine and cosine.

Area based Dynamic Traffic Control System

Area based Dynamic Traffic Control System

Abstract: The proposed system is developed with the aim to reduce traffic congestion. This system is designed to provide the appropriate signal timing so that the traffic clogging is reduced. The prevailing system includes setting fixed signal timing for each lane irrespective of the number of cars present at the traffic signal. Therefore, the green signal time given to each lane would be the same even if the lane has few cars or a wide number of cars, which is one of the reasons for traffic congestion. Thus the proposed system makes use of image processing and calculates the number of cars in every lane based on the car area and appropriately renders the traffic signal timing.

AI Based Traffic Signal Control System

AI Based Traffic Signal Control System

The traffic lights system utilized in India are essentially pre- planned wherein the season of every path to have a green signal or light is settled. In a four-path traffic signal, one path is given a green signal at any given moment. Along these lines, the traffic light enables the vehicles of all paths to go in a grouping. In this way, the activity can progress either straight way or turn by 90 degrees. So regardless of whether the activity thickness in a specific path is the minimum, it needs to sit tight superfluously for quite a while and when it gets the green flag it pointlessly makes different paths sit tight for significantly longer lengths. Numerous techniques had me acquainted with take care of the issue of activity utilizing sensor and fluffy rationale strategies, but the issue constant illuminating the issues is still tested. This issues can overcome by utilizing Digital Signal Processing Technique i.e. image Processing.

Urban Traffic Control Based on Learning Agents

Urban Traffic Control Based on Learning Agents

Abstract — The optimization of traffic light control systems is at the heart of work in traffic management. Many of the solutions considered to design efficient traffic signal patterns rely on controllers that use pre-timed stages. Such systems are unable to identify dynamic changes in the local traffic flow and thus cannot adapt to new traffic conditions. An alternative, novel approach proposed by computer scientists in order to design adaptive traffic light controllers relies on the use of intelligents agents. The idea is to let autonomous entities, named agents, learn an optimal behavior by interacting directly in the system. By using machine learning algorithms based on the attribution of rewards according to the results of the actions selected by the agents, we can obtain a control policy that tries to optimize the urban traffic flow. In this paper, we will explain how we designed an intelligent agent that learns a traffic light control policy. We will also compare this policy with results from an optimal pre-timed controller.

ASSOCIATION RULE MINING BASED VIDEO CLASSIFIER WITH LATE ACCEPTANCE HILL CLIMBING APPROACH

As the backbone of the city road network, urban expressway shares large proportion of the traffic. In Beijing, major urban expressway accounts for only 8% of the total length, but carries nearly 50% of the traffic flow [1]; in Shanghai, only 5% bears more than 35% of the city traffic traveling. Urban expressway plays a vital role in the urban road network which gradually shifted from the large- scale infrastructure construction to refinement traffic management. With the traffic demand rapid growing, much more congestion and traffic accidents, integrated active traffic management should be introduced in the background of coordination between road and vehicle. As an important part of the active traffic management, the speed guidance control has certain positive significance to improve the expressway capacity, reduce the accident risk and decrease even eliminates traffic congestion.

Density Based Traffic Control with Emergency Override

Density Based Traffic Control with Emergency Override

Traffic congestion is one of the major problems of urban life. This problem is increasing day by day because of the increasing number of vehicles with limited infrastructural development. One of the oldest ways was to have a traffic police to control the traffic manually through hand signaling. But as this became quite grueling, the conventional traffic light systems were developed to control traffic. But if a lane has more traffic congestion than the others, the existing system fails to control traffic. To solve this problem, a real time traffic control system is needed which will control the traffic.
