This paper presents an overview of the authors’ recent research on urban traffic control. Since the technical details are very complicated and well reported elsewhere the emphasis is on placing these results in a traffic context. A fairly complete solution to the optimal control of an isolated intersection is outlined. The extension of these results to networks is sketched. Finally, some interesting areas for further research are given.
