Summary

The presence and exploitation of Vehicle Automation and Communication Systems (VACS) while defining optimal control strategies in motorway traffic flow control is addressed in this paper. VACS are supposed to act both as sensors (providing information on traffic conditions) and as actuators, allowing the application of ramp metering, variable speed limit control, and lane changing control. A quadratic programming problem is defined on the basis of a novel first-order traffic flow model for multi-lane motorways. An example is presented in order to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed optimisation problem.
