The paper aims to develop a consistent framework for traffic management allowing for the joint optimization of connected vehicle paths and departure times and of signal control. The procedure is based on the communication between connected vehicles and signal controller (Vehicle to Infrastructure communications). Thus, the optimization procedure is characterized by two steps: the first refers to the adaptive traffic signal optimization, whilst the second refers to the optimization of routes and departure times of connected vehicles. In particular, as regards the adaptive traffic signal control, stage durations and sequences, as well as the node offsets, are considered as decision variables optimized with a scheduled synchronization method based on a meta-heuristic algorithm. On the contrary, the optimization of connected vehicle paths and departure times were considered as decision variables through a Mixed Integer Mathematical Program. Finally, as regards the traffic flow model, a further development of the Cell Transmission Model was considered. The whole framework was tested on a toy network.

Abstract

The paper aims to develop a consistent framework for traffic management allowing for the joint optimization of connected vehicle paths and departure times and of signal control. The procedure is based on the communication between connected vehicles and signal controller (Vehicle to Infrastructure communications). Thus, the optimization procedure is characterized by two steps: the first refers to the adaptive traffic signal optimization, whilst the second refers to the optimization of routes and departure times of connected vehicles. In particular, as regards the adaptive traffic signal control, stage durations and sequences, as well as the node offsets, are considered as decision variables optimized with a scheduled synchronization method based on a meta-heuristic algorithm. On the contrary, the optimization of connected vehicle paths and departure times were considered as decision variables through a Mixed Integer Mathematical Program. Finally, as regards the traffic flow model, a further development of the Cell Transmission Model was considered. The whole framework was tested on a toy network.
