Demand exceeding the capacity of a bottleneck will create congestion upstream of that bottleneck. Once this congestion occurs, the maximum flow through this bottleneck decreases (capacity drop). By limiting the flow towards the bottleneck, one can prevent or postpone the capacity drop and the accompanying congestion. In case the bottleneck is...

Freeway congestion can reduce the freeway throughput due to the capacity drop or due to blocking caused by spillback to upstream ramps. Research has shown that congestion can be reduced by the application of ramp metering and variable speed limits. Model predictive control is a promising strategy for the optimization of the ramp metering...

This paper introduces a topic which is of growing interest in the traffic control and management community, namely the relation between traffic data quality and the efficiency of traffic management. After some explanatory background and state of the art, it will become clear that no standard approach is available for traffic engineers to...

The development of control strategies for traffic lights, ramp metering installations, and variable speed limits to improve the throughput of road traffic networks can contribute to a more efficient use of road networks. In this project, a hierarchical controller will be developed for the improvement of the throughput of a road traffic network....

We propose an integrated approach for dynamic route guidance and ramp metering using Linear Quadratic Model Predictive Control (LQMPC). The main objective is to maximize the throughput of the network by guiding traffic flow towards to insufficiently utilized infrastructures. Due to the linear property of the LQMPC, it is fast enough for real...
