Urban travel times are intrinsically uncertain due to a lot of stochastic characteristics of traffic, especially at signalized intersections. A single travel time does not have much meaning and is not informative to drivers or traffic managers. The range of travel times is large such that certain travel times can occur for congested conditions...

The Dutch road network is, like many other road networks in the world, congested in the morning and evening peaks. The locations of congestion are quite often the same; this makes it relatively easy to take the delay of this regular congestion into account when planning a trip. However, as a result of disturbances, also unexpectedly large delays...

This thesis deals with the optimal use of existing models that predict certain phenomena of the road traffic system. Such models are extensively used in Advanced Traffic Information Systems (ATIS), Dynamic Traffic Management (DTM) or Model Predictive Control (MPC) approaches in order to improve the traffic system. As road traffic is the result...

Incidents cause a large part of the congestion on the road. This PhD study describes how people change their behaviour when facing an incident situation. It is found that car-following behaviour changes and drivers react slower on their predecessors. Furthermore, it is found that drivers change their route when facing unexpected delay caused by...

The aim of the research is to gain insight into the impact of traffic information on day-to-day route choice. The effects of both en-route information and ex-post information are studied. Special attention is given to three other important aspects in day-to-day route choice: learning from experience and information, habits and the effect of...

Transportation systems are stochastic and dynamic systems. The road capacities and the travel demand are fluctuating from time to time within a day and at the same time from day to day. For road users, the travel time and travel costs experienced over time and space are stochastic, thus desire reliable travel times and low travel costs by...

In The Netherlands, dynamic traffic management is an important approach to minimise the negative effects of increasing congestion. Measures such as ramp metering and route infor-mation, but also conventional traffic signal control, are used for this. Traditionally, the focus in designing traffic control plans has been on local control. There is...

Network robustness is the ability of a road network functioning properly facing unpredictable and exceptional incidents. A systematical framework with combined dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) models is designed for the analysis of road network robustness. With this framework, network performance considering travelers' (route) choice behavior...

Travel time and travel time reliability are important attributes of a trip. The current measures of reliability have in common that in general they all relate to the variability of travel times. However, travel time reliability does not only rely on variability but also on the stability of travel times. This paper clarifies the attributes of...

Congestion in traffic networks causes severe problems in and around large cities. It is the source of important economic inefficiencies, both on the level of individual persons and of the society as a whole. However, societal and environmental constraints prohibit large-scale extensions of the currently available network infrastructure....

Tampere, Chris. M.J. (author)
Motivated by the desire to explore future traffic flows that will consist of a mixture of classical vehicles and vehicles equipped with advanced driver assistance systems, new mathematical theories and models are developed. The basis for this theory was borrowed from the kinetic description of gas flows, where we replaced the behaviour of the...
