 The design, analysis, and evaluation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) requires good knowledge of traffic flow modelling and control techniques as well as of powerful methodologies from the areas of optimisation, control, networks and dynamic systems. The purpose of the intensive 5-day course is to cover the basic theory, methods and tools necessary for efficient design and evaluation of ITS on road and freeway networks. After a basic introduction to dynamic systems and control, the course continues with traffic flow modelling and validation issues, the modelling of traffic networks, dynamic traffic assignment and simulation tools. Measurement devices and estimation problems in traffic networks, including automatic incident detection and OD estimation, are presented and discussed. The state-of-the-art techniques in freeway traffic control, road traffic control and integrated traffic control, employing ramp metering, signal control, variable speed limits and route guidance, along with several field-implemented case studies are presented. Future prospects and challenges related to emerging vehicle automation and communication systems are discussed. Brief accounts of some optimisation, control and estimation techniques are provided. Some 50 exercises are used for consolidation of the provided knowledge. Extensive written materials, including all transparency copies, are handed out.


Who Should Attend

 Graduate students, faculty members, engineers, researchers, consultants, and government employees who are interested in improving their understanding of advanced traffic flow modelling and control tools and in becoming familiar with their application in ITS.
