Abstract
With the increase the traffic congestion, it is urgent to develop the bus priority control to improve the public transit attractiveness; Recently the application of the tram has increased the complexity of the intersection priority control. The priority traffic control strategy can reduce the delay of the tram at the intersection, so as to effectively ensure the punctuality of the tram. In this paper, based on the control theories, the tram signal control process is explored and studies, This research develops and tests the concept of active priority control and as a strategy for providing priority for tram vehicles, calibrated the control parameters of the analysis and tested with VisVAP module simulation platform. The comparison with fixed-time control strategy result in substantial improvements to transit travel time and regularity with negligible impacts to private traffic, and is found to be more effective than simple preemption.
