Enhanced Roundabout Metering

Roundabouts are widely used traffic control measures that function particularly well under balanced, light-to-medium approach traffic flows. However, even moderate flow imbalance can cause disruption and lengthy delays. One solution is to meter traffic on one or more of the approaches to increase both the entry capacity of the roundabout and reduce delay. In this paper the early-stages of a joint project between NICTA and the Roads and Traffic Authority of New South Wales (RTA) to develop novel control methodologies for roundabout metering are discussed, some preliminary results presented and future plans outlined.
