Vehicular traffic flow through a series of signals with cycle time generated by a logistic map
We study the dynamical behavior of vehicular traffic through a series of traffic signals. The vehicular traffic is controlled with the use of the cycle time generated by a logistic map. Each signal changes periodically with a cycle time, and the cycle time varies from signal to signal. The nonlinear dynamic model of the vehicular motion is presented by a nonlinear map including the logistic map. The vehicular traffic exhibits very complex behavior on varying both the cycle time and the logistic-map parameter a. For a>3, the arrival time shows a linear dependence on the cycle time. Also, the dependence of vehicular motion on parameter a is clarified.
