Modelling and Control of Multi-Vehicle Traffic Networks Using an Integrated VISSIM-Matlab Simulation Platform 2020-01-0887
This paper aims to develop a platform for integrating PTV VISSIM and MATLAB Simulink to design and analyze the flow of traffic in an urban traffic network. We model a non-signalized traffic network in VISSIM. From VISSIM, we take the inflow and outflow rates data and send them to the controller in MATLAB through a VISSIM Component Object (COM) interface. By employing an extremum seeking approach, an optimal velocity is determined and sent back to VISSIM through the COM interface. Numerical simulation demonstrates the effectiveness of the platform for testing different traffic control approaches and optimizing flow.
