• Analyising mobility benefits of variable speed limits for Auckland motorways
    Variable speed limits (VSL) is an emerging ITS tool, which can help to improve safety and efficiency of motorway systems through a better harmonization of traffic flow. It can reduce variation in speed of vehicles travelling along the controlled [...]
  • Research on the Interchange Linear Optimization Based on the Genetic Algorithm
    Through analyzing the basic components of the trumpet interchange and actual situation of domestic construction, this paper studied the alignment optimization of the A and B ramps in the A type trumpet interchanges. Taking curvature chart and "BET [...]
  • Intelligent mobility:smarter together
    This paper from imtech Traffic & infra examines the future development of technology in the iTS sector in the UK and europe against a backdrop of changes in the industry. it considers how the use of intelligent mobility is changing and that [...]
  • Traffic automation to drive efficiencies
    The amount of vehicles present in a city is increasing exponentially due to which the city management is not able to incorporate them in the present roads of the city. Since, the roads are not of desired dimensions that can incorporate [...]
  • Ensuring and quantifying its return on investment through the development of winter maintenance performance measures
    The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) budget is approximately $7.5 million annually for winter maintenance materials, $12 million for snow plow operations and $6 million in operator salaries. However until recently, it was difficult to assess [...]
  • What can traffic lights learn from us?
    Could traffic light controlled junctions ever think for themselves? The Transportation Research Group (TRG) at the University of Southampton has been investigating the use of Artificial Intelligence in traffic control. While the analogy with [...]
  • UTMC integration of SCOOT and MOVA takes shape in Southampton
    The following paper discusses the early trials undertaken by Southampton ROMANSE in the UK to understand the potential for deploying SCOOT and MOVA control strategies alongside one another in actively managing the Southampton road network [...]
  • A GIS-based approach to automating the collection of geospatial road network data
    Air pollution dispersion models require the geospatial data of modelled road network centrelines, in order to model the spatial dispersion of traffic air pollution emissions. This data represents the geographical coordinates of the centreline [...]
  • Creating the MESSAGE infrastructure.
    MESSAGE set out to make use of the everincreasing power of computer infrastructure in order to support the capture, processing, archiving, analysis and visualisation of pollution data. This paper describes how the MESSAGE e-Science architecture [...]
  • A new approach to appraisal for ITS.
    Today, most urban traffic management schemes do not include an assessment of the impact of ITS. Dynamic network management systems are commonplace in the UK, but their operational assessment is not frequent. In many cases, the benefits of such [...]
