Simon Ivanšek (2012) Visualization of traffic flow optimization with genetic algorithms. EngD thesis.
We describe a learning tool for genetic algorithms. We implemented it as a web site where genetic algorithms solve a traffic optimization problem. The traffic optimization problem is defined as a timing of red and green traffic lights in a given road segment. The road network is presented with a graph and the shortest paths are found with Dijkstra algorithm. Final configurations of red and green lights for all intersections in the road segment are visualized with an animation and graphical analysis of optimization.
