On the Impact Analysis of Emergency Vehicles Preemption on Signalized Intersections with Connected Vehicles
Paper i proceeding, 2022

In recent years, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication are the leading technologies in intelligent transportation systems. With V2I and V2V, new strategies are enabled to better facilitate emergency rescue and traffic emergency management. Since signalized intersection is the major source of delay and congestion, how to prioritize emergency vehicles (EVs) at intersections becomes an indispensable research topic and has drawn extensive studies. Albeit that emergency vehicles should be granted absolute priority, the influence of EVs on the intersection was rarely studied, especially when aggressive preemption strategies are adopted. To this end, this paper is devoted to evaluating the impacts of EVs on the control of signalized intersections, as an effort to better emergency management. Mixed-integer linear programming models are developed to optimize the intersection control before and after the pass of EVs, respectively. Case studies indicate that, by assuming the EV will take exclusively one lane at the intersection, the average delay could increase by 11.28% along with a capacity decrease of 6.63%.
