Signal Management in Real Time for urban traffic NETworks: comparative evaluations results and cost benefit analysis.

  This deliverable provides a synthesis of the results of the evaluation of the TUC strategy in the three SMART NETS test sites (in Chania, Southampton and Munich), in terms of the effects on traffic flow and on fuel consumption and air pollution. It also presents the results of the cost-benefit analysis of the TUC strategy across the three sites. It further details the cross-site comparative evaluation of the operational aspects of the TUC strategy, drawing conclusions on the effect of individual site characteristics on the performance of the TUC strategy, with recommendations for future installations.
