Prioritising high capacity public transport services offers the possibility of increasing the hourly customer throughput of on-street transport in large cities, potentially reducing delays at high congestion points in the CBD. A key means of doing this is through implementation of Transit Signal Priority (TSP) systems.
This project introduces innovations to standard TSP approaches by developing an algorithm set that minimises the green extension and red reduction of the public transport priority phase by calculating an optimum approach speed for the public transport vehicle.
By speeding up or reducing the public transport vehicle’s approach speed, the priority signal phase is while still giving priority to public transport with the advantage of reducing the potential stop time for private vehicles.
iMOVE will have more to reveal about this project and its participants soon.
