The researchers assess the performance of the distributed monitoring system with respect to different traffic signal timing plans while fixing the traffic scenario and market penetration rate (MPR). Specifically, this study focuses on the impacts of different phase times for a pre-timed signal timing plan with fixed cycle length on the performance of the V2V monitoring system. Different phase times are captured by varying the amount of green time per cycle length (i.e., g/C ratio), keeping cycle length (C) constant. The monitoring system’s performance is assessed under combinations of five different market penetration rates (MPRs) and four different traffic scenarios. These combinations and g/C ratios are simulated in VISSIM, which is a microscopic multi-model traffic flow simulation software package.
