Surtrac is an intelligent traffic signal control system based on techniques from robotics and artificial intelligence. Surtrac treats the intersection control challenge in a whole new way - as a single machine scheduling problem. The technology is then able to schedule downstream neighbors to give visibility of future input jobs.
Surtrac is designed specifically for urban road networks, where traffic is complex, dynamic, and multi-modal. Surtrac coordinates traffic in grid networks and corridors for the way people actually move around cities and towns.
