Integrated Anticipatory Control of Road Networks. A Game-Theoretical Approach

This book describes how dynamic traffic management is an important approach to minimize the negative effects of increasing congestion in the Netherlands. Measures such as ramp metering and route information, as well as the traditional traffic signal control is used. Traditionally, the focus in designing traffic signal control plans has been on local, vehicle actuated signal control. However, there is a tendency to come to a more centralized way of traffic signal control. The interaction with the route choice behavior and other traffic management measures then becomes an important aspect of the control strategy design. This is called anticipatory control. Anticipatory control can contribute to a better use of the infrastructure in relation with policy objectives. It is a traffic control method, which takes into account dynamic route choice behavior of travelers. It consists of a game-theoretical framework in which road managers and road users are considered as players in a game that take moves in turn and react on one another.
