Smart and Scalable Urban Signal Networks

Smart and Scalable Urban Signal Networks

The system is a real-time, adaptive traffic control system (or the Internet of Smart Intersections, in the sense of Smart IoT) that optimally schedules dynamic traffic flows in complex urban road networks, by integrating traffic theory with artificial intelligence (AI).

Presented work on Smart Urban Traffic Control at TFHRC

As the lead inventor of smart and scalable urban traffic control, Dr. Xie presented his work at FHWA Turner-Fairbank Research Center. Scalable urban traffic control system has been developed to address current challenges and offers a new approach to real-time, adaptive control of traffic signal networks. The system exploits a novel conceptualization of the signal network control problem as a decentralized process, where each intersection in the n
