Performance Measure Calculation Using High-resolution Data Thesis uri icon



  • Thesis (M.S., Civil Engineering)--University of Idaho, June 2014 | High-resolution data collected by traffic signal controllers can be used to create performance measures. This project produced a tool that could take VISSIM output files and create a high resolution data table in a database. Then the tool can calculate performance measures and output required values into an excel file. These values are calculated and reported on a cyclic basis so that they may be plotted and displayed together. The calculated measures were tested using manual observation and data collection points. The only measure that was not 100% accurate at calculating the performance measure was the delay and queue length estimation. This measure requires very precise data and is a promising candidate for continued research.
