Queuing Optimization of Signalized Intersections
The necessity to deal with several constraints, such as intergreen times, minimum green times, phase sequence, green wave constraints etc.
Complex non-polynomial optimization problems, especially for saturated and oversaturated conditions.
The difficulty to collect the data required to control an intersection at oversaturated conditions.
