Abstract

We report an application for designing signals at junctions in an urban area. The problem formulation connects the gradient evaluation with the path choice model, allowing a robust method to evaluate analytically the derivatives in the gradient projection method based on C-Logit model. The application is developed in the central area of Reggio Calabria, designing the signals at some junctions in a system optimum approach. The objective of the procedure is to minimize the energy spend by a vehicle in an urban area with the optimization of the signals at the junction.
