Traffic simulation for mixed traffic systems

BCE Mbam, DO Egete

Abstract


Traffic problem is classified into single and mixed, especially in most  developing countries, where motorbikes are used as the most popular transportation system. The aim of this paper is to introduce the motorbike symbol into the traffic light control system to separate cars/lorries indicator from that of motorbike. This is likely to give reliable results than if traffic simulation is developed mainly for homogeneous traffic systems. The  outlines of simulation model for mixed traffic system are presented in this paper.

KEYWORDS: Simulation Model, Mixed Traffic Systems, A Traffic Simulation Program, Driver-Vehicle-units (DVUs), fuzzy control and Intersection- junction
