Abstract: 

In the sphere of the SICURO research project, we propose a framework for signal setting design of road intersections with explicit path enumeration. The framework has two main components: an optimization procedure for signal setting design and a within-day simulation procedure to capture effects of signal setting modification on path choice behaviour. This paper describes the elements of the simulation proce-dure and illustrates some disaggregate results obtained from its application on an experimental test site.

Keywords: 

Evacuation, signal setting design, within-day traffic assignment
