Evaluation of the Operating Conditions on a Detroit Dual-Mode Vehicle Network 720272

The success of urban automated vehicle networks will depend very strongly on the availability of an efficient traffic management strategy for such networks. Previous papers have discussed an automated network traffic management strategy, known as cycle preprogramming, which appears potentially capable of accomplishing the necessary coordination of vehicle flows in a large automated network. This paper develops a methodology by means of which the efficiency of the cycle preprogramming strategy in managing traffic in a large network can be studied. The methodology is then used to analyze the operating conditions on an example automated network for the Detroit area.
