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  
Currently, there is no existing overview of control algorithms and applications for VSL and RM in mixed traffic flows.  ...  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.  ...  Such a predictive model is difficult to achieve due to the stochastic traffic behavior. Most often, predictive models are based on a general macroscopic model of traffic flow.  ...

Efficiency and Equity Performance of a Coordinated Ramp Metering Algorithm

Duo Li, Prakash Ranjitkar, Yifei Zhao
2016 Promet (Zagreb)  
Ramp metering (RM) has been widely applied due to its effectiveness in improving motorway traffic conditions by limiting inflow from on-ramps.  ...  A great deal of experimental and simulation-based studies have proven system-wide benefits of motorways from RM.  ...  We developed two Application Programming Interface (API) programs in AIMSUN to implement the proposed CRM strategy and to verify the performance of the proposed strategy by comparing to the HERO strategy  ...

Allocating Departure Time Slots to Optimize Dynamic Network Capacity

Yinyi Ma, Henk J. Van Zuylen, Yusen Chen, Jan Van Dalen
2010 Transportation Research Record  
Ramp metering is the control of a traffic stream from an on-ramp to the motorway. This is done using special traffic lights which allow vehicles to enter the motorway one by one.  ...  We then build and calibrate a dynamic model, using a part of A15 motorway.  ...  In other words, traffic flow in congestion spreads to the non-congestion areas and available time slots. So based on this pair of value of late/early departure, traffic state has improved a lot.  ...
