Simultaneous Traffic Flow and Macro Model Estimation for Signalized Junctions with Multiple Input Lanes

Luana Chetcuti Zammit, Simon G. Fabri, Kenneth Scerri

Abstract

A novel algorithm is presented for macro model estimation of the dynamics of traffic flow in a junction having multiple input lanes for each turning direction. The proposed algorithm jointly estimates the states describing the traffic flow under different traffic conditions, together with model parameters and their uncertainties of the measurement and process noise. Use is made of the Expectation-Maximization methodology with a sliding window over time in order to obtain quasi real-time estimation.
