Jiawen Wang, Jiayu Hang, Xizhao Zhou
2020 Journal of Advanced Transportation  
The intersection control and management can alleviate the traffic congestion caused by traffic incidents.  ...  Therefore, it becomes essential to develop a signal optimization method for intersections influenced by traffic incidents, which will be beneficial to prevent congestion spreading.  ...  Two new control strategies for emergency vehicle signal preemption (EVSP) is proposed by Qin et al. [14] [15] [16] .  ...

Self-Healing Road Networks: A Self-Organized Management Strategy for Traffic Incidents in Urban Road Networks [article]

Markus Rausch, Stefan Lämmer, Martin Treiber
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a novel self-organized traffic management strategy for incidents in traffic-light-controlled road networks.  ...  Subsequently, we examine four distinct incident scenarios in a grid and real-size road network and compare fixed-time and traffic-dependent traffic light controls with and without the self-healing strategy  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank the DFG (German Research Foundation) for partial financial support of this research.  ...

Variable Speed Limit and Ramp Metering for Mixed Traffic Flows: A Review and Open Questions

Filip Vrbanić, Edouard Ivanjko, Krešimir Kušić, Dino Čakija
2021 Applied Sciences  
The trend of increasing traffic demand is causing congestion on existing urban roads, including urban motorways, resulting in a decrease in Level of Service (LoS) and safety, and an increase in fuel consumption  ...  VSL and RM can reduce traffic congestion on urban motorways, especially so in the case of mixed traffic flows where AVs and CAVs can fully comply with the control system output.  ...  Acknowledgments: This research has also been carried out within the activities of the Centre of Research Excellence for Data Science and Cooperative Systems supported by the Ministry of Science and Education  ...

Vehicle Class–Specific Route Guidance of Freeway Traffic by Model-Predictive Control

Thomas Schreiter, Ramon L. Landman, J. W. C. (Hans) van Lint, Andreas Hegyi, Serge P. Hoogendoorn
2012 Transportation Research Record  
Experiments in a simple network with synthetic data show that a multi-class controller outperforms a single-class controller.  ...  In this paper, we develop a multi-class controller that reroutes the traffic class-specifically dependent on the vehicle class.  ...  In the case of a light incident (ω = 0.4), more vehicles have to be rerouted to prevent congestion.  ...

Interdisciplinary Urban Tunnel Control within Smart Cities

Ondřej Přibyl, Pavel Přibyl, Miroslav Svítek
2021 Applied Sciences  
Typically, only the traffic parameters and not the environmental impacts are considered. This paper has two major objectives. First, we provide a systemic view on a road urban tunnel.  ...  This model expresses the actual traffic situation in a monetary form (i.e., cost of congestions).  ...  The congestions in tunnels can be addressed mainly by two control approaches of them are based on highway management strategies [15, 16] : A.  ...

The Use of Cooperative Approach in Ramp Metering

Martin Gregurić, Edouard Ivanjko, Sadko Mandžuka
2016 Promet (Zagreb)  
To ensure higher Level of Service (LoS) at urban motorways, new traffic control concepts are being applied since in most cases there is no available space for infrastructural build-up.  ...  For urban motorways, the mostly used control methods are ramp metering combined with additional control methods like variable speed limit control (VSLC).  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The research reported in this paper is funded by the FP7 -Collaborative Project: Intelligent Cooperative Sensing for Improved traffic efficiency -ICSI (FP7-317671) and supported by the EU  ...
