Recent findings regarding macroscopic relationships of urban traffic measures such as the Macroscopic or Network Fundamental Diagram (MFD or NFD) have led to the development of novel traffic control strategies that can be applied at a network-wide level. One pertinent example is perimeter flow control (also known as gating or metering), which...

Automated driving technology is emerging. Yet, less is known about when automated vehicles will hit the market, how penetration rates will evolve and to what extent this new transportation technology will affect transportation demand and planning. This study identified through scenario analysis plausible future development paths of automated...

Weaving is defined as the crossing of two streams travelling in the same direction along a significant section of the road without the assistance of traffic control devices. Merging and diverging vehicles need to make one or more lane-changes in a limited space and time, determined by the weaving section length. This situation creates intensive...

Turbulence in traffic is a commonly known phenomenon, but the exact characteristics of this phenomenon are not yet clear. It reflects individual changes in speed, headways, and lanes in the traffic stream. The currently used freeway design guidelines prescribe different measures for handling turbulence, such as sufficient ramp spacing, and...

Passing maneuvers allow faster drivers to continue driving at their own desired speeds without being delayed behind an impeding vehicle. On two lane rural roads, this requires from the passing driver to occupy the opposing lane. This has tremendous implications on safety and operation of two-lane roads. In the literature, several studies...

Developing practicable and efficient real-time signal control strategies for urban road networks is a major challenge with significant scientific and practical relevance. For the sake of practical feasibility, many urban traffic control strategies are based on simplified models. In this way, a trade-off can be made between controller accuracy,...

Overtaking on two-lane roads is a complex driving maneuver. Drivers who desire to overtake a lead vehicle need to evaluate the available gaps in the opposite direction and accept a sufficient gap to successfully complete the overtaking maneuver. However, often drivers realize that the gap they accepted is shorter than what they actually need to...

Travel behaviour models typically rely on data afflicted by errors, in perception (e.g., over/under-estimation by traveller) and measurement (e.g., software or researcher imputation error). Such errors are shown to have a relevant impact on model outputs. So far a comprehensive framework to deal with different types of biases related to travel...

Parking pricing policies can be used as a policy instrument to steer the parking market and reduce the externalities caused by traffic in general and parking in particular. A more efficient management of parking demand can improve the utilization of the limited parking capacity at high-demand areas. Even though parking policies are often a topic...

In order to adequately characterize the fatigue response of the various membranes with surrounding multilayer surfacing layers on orthotropic steel decks and collect the necessary parameters for FE modeling, the details of the cyclic Membrane Adhesion Tester (MAT) are introduced. The fatigue damage in membrane interface is related to the amount...

Recent studies demonstrated the efficiency of feedback-based gating control in mitigating congestion in urban networks by exploiting the notion of network fundamental diagram (NFD). The employed feedback regulator of proportional-integral(PI)-type targets an operating NFD point of maximum throughput to enhance the mobility in the urban road...

In this paper, the use of advanced traffic data is discussed to contribute to the ongoing debate about their applications in dynamic origin-destination (OD) estimation. This is done by discussing the advantages and disadvantages of traffic data with support of the findings of a benchmark study. The benchmark framework is designed to assess the...

Road crashes are considered as one of the main threats to human life around the world. Children pedestrians are most at risk to be seriously injured in road crashes, in particular, those from economically disadvantaged communities. Various factors contribute to their high involvement in road crashes. Some of these factors are related to the...

Light rail has been successfully implemented in many urban regions worldwide. Although light rail has been a proven transport concept in many cities, there is much debate on the (societal) cost-benefit ratio of these systems. In addition to the success stories, several light rail projects were not that successful or even failed. In recent years,...

Automated vehicles are expected to have a substantial impact on traffic flow efficiency, safety levels and levels of emissions. However, Fields Operational Tests suggest that drivers may prefer to disengage Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and resume manual control in dense traffic conditions and before performing manoeuvres such as lane changing....
