Abstract

The paper deals with the scientific problem of the evaluation of traffic signal systems and it analyses, in the light of European experience, which variables must be collected and how to weigh their non linearity to create homogeneous comparisons between different systems and urban traffic networks. Variables and the measure of their accuracy must be clearly defined to transfer results from one urban traffic scenario to another. The Italian urban networks of Morbegno, Padua, Parma, Piacenza and Terni, are then analysed to single out the best experimental field collection for measurement methodology and comparison applicatio
