A traffic control problem can be formulated as a decision-making problem for a stochastic dynamic system. Optimal traffic signal settings at intersections can minimize the vehicle delay time or the queue length at a stop line. In this paper, a new adaptive control strategy for signalized intersections is developed and tested by simulation. The simulation results show significant improvement over the traditional fully actuated control algorithm, especially for the case of high volume traffic demand.
