Therefore, the travel time of the previous bus does not really help in determining the travel time of the current bus since the arrival phase and the queue length could be different. A number of research ideas can be further researched to enhance and improve the developed Dynamic TSP system. The dynamic TSP algorithm can be enhanced by adding a larger library of TSP solutions or some newly defined scenarios. In addition, the algorithm can comprise 45 more flexible and effective offset recovery and signal compensation strategies.

2 Key elements of the signal control implementation The initial test application of Q-learning to the problem of traffic signal control involved a single, isolated intersection. The isolated signal and linear system implementations involve two-phase operation without turning f lows. The test-bed consisted of a simulated two-phase signal controlling the intersection of two, two-lane roads. Vehicle arrivals were generated using individual Poisson processes with pre-defined average arrival rates on each of the four approaches.

However, further improvements can be achieved with a deeper understanding of the underlying traffic f low behaviour, and an advanced traffic management strategy that is tailored to that behaviour. Advanced computer analysis and control algorithms are required to achieve these goals, and a research, training and test facility is necessary to develop these algorithms. , 2006) ATMS construct a group of independent but interrelated elements comprising a unified whole in order to achieve certain goal(s) while maintaining the system’s stability.
