Abstract

This paper presents a preliminary assessment of the potential performance gains of a self-organized traffic light policy developed by Lämmer and Helbing. A large amount of data was obtained for a complex real-world intersection that serves as an ideal test-bed for comparison of traffic control policies. We provide evidence that a change in policy may drastically decrease average queue lengths and waiting times, suggesting the self-organized policy is a promising approach to the control of traffic intersections deserving further investigation and potentially implementation.
