A MULTI-OBJECTIVE INTEGRATED LARGE-SCALE OPTIMIZED RAMP METERING CONTROL SYSTEM FOR FREEWAY/SURFACE-STREET TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT

This dissertation presents the Multi-objective Integrated Large-scale Optimized ramp metering System (MILOS), a hierarchical structure designed to solve large scale freeway management problems. The problems deal with issues such as: dynamic state changes stochasticity, multi-dimensionality, unpredictability, partial- observability, and existence of multiple objectives. MILOS is able to decompose the freeway control problem into subproblems. Three primary components comprise MILOS: anomaly detection and optimization scheduling based on statistical process control, area-wide metering rate coordination, and predictive-cooperative real-time metering rate regulation.
