A Fuzzy Logic Model for Real-time Incident Detection in Urban Road Network

Faisal Ahmed, Yaser E. Hawas

Abstract

Incident detection systems for the urban traffic network are still lacking efficient algorithms or models for better performance. This paper presents a new urban incident detection system based on the application of Fuzzy Logic modeling. Offline urban incident and corresponding non-incident scenarios are generated using a microscopic simulation model assuming varying traffic link flows, phase timing, cycle times, and link lengths. The traffic measures are extracted from three detectors on each link. Statistical significance analysis was utilized to identify the significant input variables to be used in developing the Neuro-fuzzy model. A set of data was generated and used for training of the proposed Neuro-fuzzy model, while another set was used for validation. The performance of the proposed model is assessed using the success and the false alarm rates of detecting an incident at a specific cycle time.
