Integrating Route Guidance Systems With Traffic Management Measures

Traffic management solutions traditionally rely on road infrastructure-based collective measures such as traffic light control and signaling restrictions or guidance through static signs or variable message signs. Traffic information distributed via broadcast, geared to improve traffic safety and efficiency, complements these activities. This article discusses how efforts by road operators are no longer restricted to detecting and forecasting congestion, but increasingly include collective guidance measures whereby they try to channel traffic towards other parts of the network if there is sufficient capacity on alternative routes. If valid routes alternatives are to be detected: 1) sufficiently dense detection and 2) state-of-the-art generation techniques for the current and forecasted traffic state are needed with sufficient coverage of the network.
