Abstract

Efficient traffic control and management is a fundamental and urgent challenge in our ever-growing cities. Maximizing roadway capacity usage, balancing traffic flows, decreasing emission, improving traffic safety and providing motorists with the best end-to-end transportation experience are the most important goals of modern intelligent traffic control infrastructures. Evolving traffic light or traffic signal controller systems are playing an important role in these architectures by adaptively and dynamically coordinating individual traffic lights to achieve city-wide objectives of traffic operations. The integration of such systems with vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to- infrastructure (V2I) communication techniques (together referred as V2X) could easily be the next step of this evolution allowing for dynamic real-time information exchange between all the players of the traffic controlling ecosystem and fostering cooperative urban mobility. In this paper we propose a possible architecture for a V2X-integrated traffic light controller systems and present the testbed with our proof-of-concept implementation of the proposed scheme.
