Abstract:
In this paper, we introduce a co-optimization approach to jointly optimize the traffic network topology and traffic controllers in a traffic network. Since the network topology design has a long-term goal, while the traffic control is usually based on a minute-to-minute basis traffic situation, we use a so-called parameterized traffic control method to bring them to the same time scale. We apply the proposed co-optimization approach in a simulation-based case study, and compare it with a pure topology design and an iterative optimization method. The results show that our method can improve the interaction between topology design and traffic control design, and result in a better overall performance.
