Real-time traffic flow optimization

by B. C. Black, D. C. Gazis
Discussed are methods underlying the real-time monitoring and controlling system of a critical traffic link. Algorithms were developed for recognizing the length patterns of vehicles passing over detectors and using these for precisely computing traffic density in several sections of the Lincoln Tunnel. Vehicle control was adjusted by the system to optimize tunnel throughput.
