Abstract

Urbanization and population growth intensify the problems associated with traffic congestion in metropolitan areas all over the world. Therefore, researchers always seek to find innovative solutions to enhance the performance of transport systems in terms of safety, mobility, and environmental sustainability. Consequently, the optimal design of signal control parameters concerning real-time traffic congestion has been the subject of extensive research for many years. The states of the art traffic signal control methods mainly use the data from infrastructure-based sensors such as loop detectors and video cameras. However, these sensors are mainly spot detectors and are only able to sense the..
