Research of the Incoming Traffic Flow at City Intersections on the Suitability of the Use of Adapted Traffic Light Control

When choosing methods for traffic organization at intersections and introducing automated traffic control systems, the problem arises of assigning a method of regulating traffic flow. The choice is affected by the degree of isolation of one intersection from neighboring ones. Different sources and regulatory documents give different recommendations for determining this parameter. In particular, in “Highway capacity manual” it is defined that an intersection that does not have a signal-controlled intersection in the vicinity of more than 1.6 km in isolation is defined. This situation makes all city intersections uninsulated, a priori working in conjunction with neighboring intersections. The article checks the incoming traffic flow for compliance with the basic statistical laws of the distribution of intervals between vehicles in it. In the future, the goal is to identify significant differences in the behavior of the traffic flow, which would affect the effectiveness of adaptive traffic control.
