Abstract—The traditional roundabout adopts the way of priority control. However, with the increasing of urban vehicles, the conflicts of traffic flows frequently happened among the vehicles in the no signal rotary intersection. It is difficult for the weaving vehicles to get out of the circulating lane in time which can result in the increase of the delay, queues length, congestion and even lock-up. Aiming at the problem of signal control in roundabout, this paper takes Dalian Shuma Square as an example, and uses VISSIM software to simulate the modeling. Meanwhile, priority control, each phase for entrance control and two-step left control methods under different flow rates conditions was used in the simulation. The average queue length, average delay and the saturated degree were used as key indicators to evaluate the efficiency of roundabout with different control methods, and the applicability of the three control methods was obtained which can provide a reference for the choice of control modes of roundabout.
