TRAFBUS - Modelling and Analysis of Traffic and Impact of Dedicated Bus Lanes on Strovolos Avenue

Duration: 30 months (2006-2008)

Start:28/12/2006

Project Website: http://www.netrl.cs.ucy.ac.cy/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=47&Itemid=11

Principal Investigator: Ανδρέας Πιτσιλλίδης

Main Funding Source: European Commission

Total Cost:65,256.61

Effective transportation planning and the use of Intelligent Transportation Systems might be the only solution to traffic congestion, which is the cause of a variety of social economic and environmental problems. Traffic congestion is increasing world-wide as a result of increased motorization, urbanization, population growth and changes in population density. Congestion reduces utilization of the transportation infrastructure and increases travel time, fuel consumption, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

The aim of the TRAFBUS Project is to examine the use of simulation modelling in order to formulate strategies for improving the traffic flow of the current and future layouts of a major traffic network, in Nicosia the capital of Cyprus. Specifically the whole traffic network of Strovolos Avenue with its intersections and side roads is studied in detail. The proposed model examines Signal Control Strategies and Bus Rapid Transit methods in a microscopic simulated environment. The rational is to attract more people to use the public transportation network and therefore reduce congestion and the negative effects on human safety as well as reduce pollution of the natural environment.

In particular, simulation tests are carried out for a variety of signal control strategies in relation to a number of scenarios regarding plans to include dedicated bus lanes in Strovolos Avenue, which is a major arterial of Nicosia. Various Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems scenarios are simulated, tested and evaluated. Further, safety issues that arise due to dedicated bus lanes and BRT systems are analysed and optimization algorithms for bus motion and signal timing are incorporated.

The results from the simulation experiments are evaluated in cooperation with the Ministry of Communications and the Transportation Planning Section of the Public Works Department. Based on the evaluation, optimum solutions are derived, with respect to certain measures of effectiveness including safety and efficiency of the traffic network as well as the impact on the natural environment.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus. The Department has experienced significant growth over the last few years with strong groups in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, data management, graphics and virtual reality, internet computing, software engineering and theoretical computer science. The Department offers a Bachelor degree in Computer Science with 7 different specializations as well as a number of Master degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science.

The Department has a strong research infrastructure comprising high-performance clusters and storage area networks, cloud computing facilities, smart-phones and sensing devices and virtual reality equipment. Since 2005, our Department has been involved in more than 160 research projects funded from both the European Union and the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation with total funding of over 21.5 million euros.
