Since congestion of traffic is ubiquitous in the modern city, optimizing the behavior of traffic lights for efficient traffic flow is a critically important goal. However，agents often select only locally optimal actions without coordinating their neighbor intersections. In this paper, an urban road traffic area-wide coordination control algorithm based on collaborative Qlearning is proposed. The agent model of traffic intersections is demonstrated. The algorithm substantially reduces average vehicular delay by using a collaborative Q-learning algorithm and can cooperative control of multiple intersections to achieve a near optimal control policy. The computer simulation results show that the control algorithm can effectively reduce the average delay time and play a very good control effect with multi-intersections, so the coordination method used in this paper is effective.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
