Title: Evaluation of transit signal priority using analytical method
Author: Zhang, Jie
Abstract: Transit Signal Priority (TSP ) systems have grown in popularity throughout the world£¬ and are regarded as a cost -effective way to solve current congestion in metropolitan areas . Successful deployment of TSP systems requires thorough laboratory evaluation before field implementation . Traffic simulation is a powerful tool in this regard ; however , it requires tremendous efforts toward network coding , data collection and model calibration . Besides , simulation models tend to be project specific and the models developed for one project are often discarded upon the completion of that project . In this thesis , it is shown that the impacts of two fundamental TSP strategies (early green and extended green ) can be evaluated using an analytical approach . The impacts of the above two strategies on both prioritized and non -prioritized approaches are illustrated both graphically as well as analytically . The validity of the proposed analysis is examined by an example application . A microscopic simulation tool , Vissim4 .1 , is applied for comparing the results of the analytical method .
