Traffic congestion is an ever expanding problem caused by the mismatch of economic growth and infrastructure expending which drains the commuters' life and it affects the GDP of the busiest cities. Traffic light signal control (TLSC), has the aim to alleviate the problem. As Traffic congestion phenomena arises in the real world and is unfeasible to be replicated under controlled environments the researchers' answer is to perform computer simulations. As every study carries it's own set of assumptions, performance metrics and usually proprietary datasets there's no way to make direct comparisons from the literature and extract a generalized consensus on which approaches are best. In this article we propose a methodology to make such works verifiable.
