Abstract

Traffic signals are installed at road intersections to control the flow of traffic. An optimally operating traffic signal improves the efficiency of traffic flow while maintaining safety. The effectiveness of traffic signals has a significant impact on travel time for vehicular traffic. There are several measures of effectiveness (MOE) for traffic signals. In this paper, we develop a work-flow to automatically score and rank the intersections in a region based on their performance, and group the intersections that show similar behavior, thereby highlighting patterns of similarity. In the process, we also detect potential bottlenecks in the region of interest.
