This paper reviews the state of the art in traffic signal control methods that are based on data coming from onboard smartphones or connected vehicles. The review of the state of the art is carried out by applying analytical scientometric tools (topic visualization, co‐citation analysis to establish influential journals and references, country analysis based on coauthorship, trendingtopics analysis carried out by overlay visualization). The introduction of autonomous and connected vehicles will allow city management organizations to introduce new intersection management systems that rely on real‐time positional data coming from instrumented vehicles. Traditional vehicles also could benefit from these new technologies by profiting from better‐regulated intersections. This paper using a scientometric approach frames all the scientific contributions aimed at the field of traffic signal methods and experiments based on connected vehicles and floating car data. The applied scientometric approach reveals trending ideas and concepts and identifies the relevant documents that can be consulted in order for scientists and professionals to develop further this field with the implementation of new traffic signal control systems that can “give the green light” to drivers.

Abstract

This paper reviews the state of the art in traffic signal control methods that are based on data coming from onboard smartphones or connected vehicles. The review of the state of the art is carried out by applying analytical scientometric tools (topic visualization, co‐citation analysis to establish influential journals and references, country analysis based on coauthorship, trendingtopics analysis carried out by overlay visualization). The introduction of autonomous and connected vehicles will allow city management organizations to introduce new intersection management systems that rely on real‐time positional data coming from instrumented vehicles. Traditional vehicles also could benefit from these new technologies by profiting from better‐regulated intersections. This paper using a scientometric approach frames all the scientific contributions aimed at the field of traffic signal methods and experiments based on connected vehicles and floating car data. The applied scientometric approach reveals trending ideas and concepts and identifies the relevant documents that can be consulted in order for scientists and professionals to develop further this field with the implementation of new traffic signal control systems that can “give the green light” to drivers.
