Urban mobility is challenged with increasing demand, while at the same time reducing emissions, without leading to an unpleasant living environment. Reducing the number of stops on the urban arterial controlled by the coordinated traffic controller can provide (part of) the solution to these challenges for urban mobility. Coordinated traffic...

Research has shown that GLOSA systems can help reduce the emission of $CO_2$ by motor vehicles and improve flow on urban road networks. However, existing GLOSA systems only work in combination with a limited selection of Traffic Signal Controllers (TSCs) and therefore have not been widely implemented. This research describes and evaluates the...

A new generation of intelligent Traffic Light Controllers uses Model Predictive Control to minimise delay at signalised intersections. The conventional cycle of set sequences of green phases is dropped for optimisation purposes. This research uses the ethical theories utilitarianism, egalitarianism, sufficientarianism & deontology to define...

Current day routing systems use predicted travel times to calculate optimal routes. Some routing algorithms even use predicted traffic lights states to optimize these routes and to improve the expected travel time. But all these methods optimize the expected travel time and do not take reliability into account. Reliability is a major service...

Intersections are the bottleneck of traffic flow. Vehicle-actuated control improved the delay at an intersection by making the green phase variable based on the presence of vehicles as measured by detector loops. The duration of the yellow and red phase remains fixed times because intentions of specific human-driven vehicles (HDVs) are unknown,...

Ever increasing traffic load on freeways calls for smart solutions to improve throughput. With the uprise and standardization of C-ITS, accuracy and latency of traffic state measurements are immensely improved, while the span of control is increased. In this paper, a traffic control algorithm that aims to prevent breakdown at recurring...

With the arrival of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) concepts for traffic control systems emerge that let CAVs weave over the crossing area of an intersection. However, in the current literature, the safety of these vehicles is generally an assumption rather than a certainty. Moreover, the time period where CAVs and Human-Driven Vehicles ...

Fixed-time control and vehicle-actuated control are two main signaling strategies implemented at intersections for urban traffic management. The timing and structure of the controllers are usually designed optimally based on average historical demand patterns at the intersection. Under the premise of performance quality assurance, both fixed...

In this MSc Thesis project, a Model Predictive Controller (MPC controller) using variable speed limits and intersection control was designed and subsequently evaluated. The design was based on combining existing control algorithms for urban and freeway networks, integrating them. While this MPC controller improved upon throughput more than MPC...

The number of cars on the road and the need for transportation has increased rapidly during the past decades, leading to an increase of congestion. Traffic congestion and delays lead to high societal costs. Congestion leads to a capacity drop, i.e. the capacity of the road is reduced when congestion sets in. Due to limited financial and physical...

The traffic state of a road network can be described by a so called macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD). The average production is related to the accumulation of a specific road network in this diagram. Studies have shown that the MFD could be used in an evaluation based method of a certain road network. A promising application field of the...

Traffic congestion continues to remain a serious problem in most countries, with significant economic and environmental losses. ‘Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)’ that utilize advanced information and communication technology for managing road infrastructure, including vehicles and users, have shown great potential in dealing with this...

In the Netherlands and all over the world congestion is still an everyday occurrence. In order to reduce this congestion the capacity of the freeways is increased and dynamic traffic management measures (DTM) are applied. One of these DTMs is ramp metering. Ramp metering systems decrease the inflow to the freeway in order to prevent the demand...

Stops en route are a main concern for cyclists as they want to travel in the most comfortable fashion possible. The braking and acceleration at traffic lights cause losses of kinetic energy and make the trips of cyclists more strenuous than they would have been without stops. By reducing the number of stops for cyclists, the attraction of the...

Traffic congestion leads to significant economic and environmental costs. Currently, we can reduce congestion using infrastructure based systems, such as ramp metering installations and variable speed limits. However, we see more and more in-vehicle technologies which have the potential of replacing infrastructure based technologies. Therefore,...

At this moment, dynamic traffic management measures are mostly focused on local level. This can result in local improvements but decreasing network performances. To optimize the network performances by the implementation of DTM measures, an optimization method is required. Model predictive control (MLP) is a network-wide and dynamic optimization...

This thesis focuses on the subject of Dynamic Traffic Management (DTM) in countering traffic problems in the Netherlands, which comprises traffic control based on the real time traffic situation. Currently, most DTM measures (e.g. traffic signals, route information, ramp meters) function in an isolated manner, which limits its effectiveness from...

This thesis deals with separation of freeway traffic using dynamic lane assignment, based on ones destination; either or not to the next downstream exit. At freeway exits a high amount of lane changes lead to capacity reduction. Furthermore, when the flow to the exit exceeds the exit capacity (like at an IKEA on Sundays) a queue will form that...

Door de toename van de mobiliteit wordt het steeds drukker op de Nederlandse autosnelwegen. Het is echter onmogelijk, en ook onverantwoord om de wegcapaciteit grenzeloos uit te breiden. De doelstelling van de wegbeheerders is dan ook om de bestaande wegcapaciteit beter te benutten, oftewel efficiënter gebruik te maken van het Nederlandse...
