Title: Traffic signal control using vehicle trajectory data

Abstract

A system and method for use in controlling traffic signaling devices located along public roadways. The method carried out by the system includes: receiving, at one or more computers, time-location (TL) data from a plurality of wirelessly connected devices traveling through an intersection of a public roadway; determining, by the one or more computers using the received TL data, a traffic volume estimation value representative of a volume of traffic at the intersection; and sending the traffic volume estimation value to a traffic signaling control system configured to control a traffic signaling device at the intersection based on the traffic volume estimation value.
