Abstract

In the sphere of the SICURO research project, we propose a framework for signal setting design of road intersections with explicit path enumeration. The framework has two main components: an optimization procedure for signal setting design and a within-day simulation procedure to capture effects of signal setting modification on path choice behaviour. This paper describes the elements of the simulation procedure and illustrates some disaggregate results obtained from its application on an experimental test site.
