Real-time optimization at diamond interchanges Conference Paper uri icon


  • Due to the complexity of traffic movements occurring within urban interchanges and increasing levels of demand, many diamond interchanges are experiencing serious congestion. The closely-spaced traffic signals with high-volume turning traffic create a complex control scenario. The diamond interchange offers the unique opportunity to integrate many innovative technologies into a system that is small enough to be manageable, yet complex enough to present a challenging control environment. Developing a real-time, multi-modal, traffic adaptive interchange control system is a research objective of the Intelligent Vehicle Highway System (IVHS) Research Center of Excellence Program of the Texas Transportation Institute. This research effort will integrate a variety of technologies into a single control system that will increase traffic performance and demonstrate IVHS concepts in advanced traffic management systems. Through the use of video imaging equipment, traffic information processing, and real-time optimization and control, road users will experience less delay, less congestion and fewer safety problems at diamond interchanges.
