The current traffic control systems in the metro cities of India are facing problems due to randomness in the traffic density pattern throughout the day. The traffic signal timers have a fixed time period to switch traffic between different directions. Due to this, the vehicles have to often wait for a long-time span even if the traffic density is very ...

TRL offers TEST to traffic operators

Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) of the United Kingdom has offered a new medium to the operators of traffic control centres for integrating real-time signal control mechanisms like SCOOT (Split Cycle and Offset Optimisation Technique) with PTV’s VISSIM micro-simulation package. Called Tool for Evaluating Strategies for Traffic (TEST), this microscopic simulation programme will allow the operators to replicate various traffic scenarios ...
