Abstract

On the basis of policy-based target groups, we developed a prioritization strategy for traffic streams and applied it with the adaptive urban traffic control (UTC) ImFlow. Our main aim was to gain understanding of the possibilities of a policy driven prioritization in an urban context. We conclude that traffic light control can become more rational, effective and efficient from a policy viewpoint. However, situational and operational constraints pose a limit.
