A Computational Model to Study Urban Traffic Control

Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to develop a computational model to study vehicle flow on urban roads. The model presents a study undertaken at a two-way intersection where vehicle flow is controlled by traffic lights operating according to fixed intervals of times. This model is computationally simulated using Matlab/Simulink. Several simulations were processed and in practice the model proved to be stable and reliable. It is expected that the results will contribute to the creation of a stochastic predictive model to anticipate situations that lead to traffic jams.

Index Terms—Simulation model, traffic lights, traffic simulation.
