Traffic Management Solutions

The COLOMBO project uses and enhances several software packages. The following figure shows how they interact in general. For more detailed information please refer to the stated respective deliverables or links in the sub-sections below.

For download instructions please refer to the general software page.

SWARM

This is a traffic light control (TLC) algorithm for self-optimising traffic lights (SOTL). It bases on the idea of ant pheromones.

Further documentation can be found in deliverable D2.2 "Policy Definition and dynamic Policy Selection Algorithms".

Emissions Monitoring system (EMS)

Using the PHEM module, described in D1.3 "Decentralized Monitoring based on Low Penetration Traffic Information".

Traffic State Estimation (TSE)

Using data fusion, described in D1.3 "Decentralized Monitoring based on Low Penetration Traffic Information".

Automatic Incident Detection (AID)

Using Probability Density Maps (PDM), described in D1.3 "Decentralized Monitoring based on Low Penetration Traffic Information".

irace (Tuning Tool Kit)

The Tuning Tool Kit (tuningTK) defines a common interface to several automatic algorithm configuration tools. The current release 0.6 as free software under the GPL supports ParamILS, SMAC, and irace. It includes the user documentation as well as a sample project.
