Modeling and Simulation of Urban Traffic Signals

Khodakaram Salimifard and Mehdi Ansari
Abstract—Traffic signals play a vital role in effective traffic management. In this paper we apply Arena simulation tool box for modeling and simulation of urban traffic signal system. It has been shown that Arena could be used in simulation of traffic signals system, despite the fact that Arena is not designed for modeling urban traffic signal control. We presented a non-trivial case study to illustrate how Arena is capable of modeling traffic systems.

Index Terms—Urban traffic, traffic lights, discrete event simulation, Arena software.
