A GIS-Based Traffic Control Strategy Planning at Urban Intersections

Free registration required

Executive Summary

For having better and up to date traffic information access, spatio-temporal GIS for Transportation (TGIS-T) need to interact with the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) is one of the components of the ITS and predicts traffic congestion and provides real time traffic information and optimal control strategies for freeways and arterials. ATMS needs automatic acquisition of traffic information such as traffic volume using different detectors. In fact, the ideal condition for ATMS is the one in which all urban intersections are equipped with these detectors, however, it would not be possible in short time.
