An Open Traffic Light Control Model for Reducing Vehicles' Emissions Based on ETC Vehicles

1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.88 (24 Votes)

ABSTRACT:

Usually, vehicles' stop-and-go driving will consume more fuel and emit more $hbox{CO}_{2}$ than constant speed driving. To reduce vehicles' $hbox{CO}_{2}$ emissions, vehicles' travel should be smoothed by reducing the stop-and-go times. In this paper, a three-tier structure is proposed to realize dynamic traffic light control for smoothing vehicles' travel. In tier-1, an electronic toll collection (ETC) system is employed for collecting road traffic flow data and calculating the recommended speed. In tier-2, radio antennas are installed near the traffic lights. Road traffic flow information can be obtained by wireless communication between the antennas and ETC devices. In tier-3, a branch-and-bound-based real-time traffic light control algorithm is designed to smooth vehicles' travels. After smoothing vehicles' travels, more vehicles can pass intersections with less waiting time and fewer short-time stops; therefore, the vehicles' $hbox{CO}_{2}$ emissions can be reduced. Simulation results indicate that the proposed scheme performs much better than the adaptive fuzzy traffic light control method: The average waiting time, short-time stop times, and $ hbox{CO}_{2}$ emissions are greatly reduced, and the nonstop passing rate is greatly improved.
