Summary:
Implementation of the Optimized Policies for Adaptive Control (OPAC) strategy in conjunction with a vehicle velocity controller offers the potential for significantly improving the control strategies used at isolated intersections with respect to measured vehicle delays. The exhaustive sequential search procedure by OPAC provides the optimal switching policies for the intersection while the vehicle velocity controller varies vehicle velocities to reduce vehicle stopping delays. The OPAC algorithm implemented with the vehicle velocity controller was found to have substantially lower delays than OPAC alone.
