The paper describes an optimization procedure to synchronize traffic signals along an urban road artery. The solution procedure applies first a genetic algorithm and then a hill climbing algorithm for local adjustments. The fitness function is evaluated by means of a traffic model that simulates platoon progression along the links, their combination and possible queuing at nodes. The potential benefits of the synchronization procedure have been assessed by simulating a real urban artery through the micro-simulation model Transmodeler.
