The effectivity of SCATS Master Isolated (SMI) control for non-coordinated signalized intersections was evaluated using vehicle-by-vehicle simulation including an evaluation of the effects of detector failure as well as field surveys. Various SCATS-like adaptive control algorithms were developed and tested through extensive simulation tests with a wide range of demand flow patterns and a large number of control parameter combinations. Traditional vehicle-actuated and fixed-time control were also evaluated. The results for Algorithm 9, which was closest to the SMI method, and the traditional vehicle-actuated control method are presented.
