Conclusion



Conclusion

This paper reviews and extend the main features of traffic light controllers as part of ITS applications in vicinity of new sensor technologies, communications methods and cooperative ITS applications. Simulation of Amsterdam city(the Netherlands) with “Smart Traffic” as the new generation of model-based controller is shown. Connected and cooperative vehicles are participating in this simulation study as data sources to increase accuracy of demand prediction and thus, improve the performance of “Smart Traffic”.
