Simulation of Crossroad Traffic
AbstractIt is difficult to find the right tool for making traffic regimemodels because so many different situations are involved.SIMULINK has proved to be one of the best. The paper showsthe design and the use of components and models in the programMarlab!SIMULINK. It presems the simulation results forthe model of a traffic light controlled crossroadand indicatesthe possibilities for the study of traffic optimisation in junctions.
