A Blockchain-Based Architecture for Traffic Signal Control Systems

Wanxin Li, Mark Nejad, Rui Zhang

Ever-growing incorporation of connected vehicle (CV) technologies into intelligent traffic signal control systems bring about significant data security issues in the connected vehicular networks. This paper presents a novel decentralized and secure by design architecture for connected vehicle data security, which is based on the emerging blockchain paradigm. In a simulation study, we applied this architecture to defend the Intelligent Traffic Signal System (I-SIG), a USDOT approved CV pilot program, against congestion attacks. The results show the performance of the proposed architecture for the traffic signal control system.
