Passenger Car Unit (PCU) is the metric used to convert heterogenic traffic in to homogenous traffic. In India traffic pattern is heterogeneous, it is necessary to convert heterogeneous traffic to homogenous traffic while designing any signalized intersection. PCU Value is dynamic in Nature. PCU value is depends upon current road traffic condition. In India PCU value is based on value given in IRC SP 41. Developed countries devised several methods for calculating PCUs. These PCU values (devised in developed countries) are not suitable for Indian heterogeneous traffic conditions this paper reviews the estimation carried out to find PCU value worldwide.
