Adaptive traffic control systems are designed to
overcome the limitations of fixed time control of signalized
intersections in urban environments. They respond to fluctuations
in traffic patterns by adjusting signal timing in accordance with
traffic demand and can reduce traffic congestion, delays, and
decrease travel time. One of such systems is UTOPIA (Urban
Traffic Optimization by Integrated Automation). It is advisable
to evaluate such a system using microscopic simulation before
implementation. A framework to connect UTOPIA with the
microscopic simulator VISSIM is implemented in this paper to
enable such evaluation. The framework is tested using real-world
traffic data from a congested corridor of 7 signalized intersections
in the wider center area of the City of Skopje, Macedonia. Ob-
tained results are analyzed using chosen performance measures
suitable for urban environments like delay, queue length, travel
time, intersection level of service and number of stops.
