Freeway Management System (FMS) officially launched by Minister of Transport, Hon. Jeff Radebe – October • Aim of FMS: – Improve Road Safety – Manage Traffic Flow – Manage Incidents – Inform road users with accurate and up­ to –date informationFile Size: 3MB. To improve traffic mobility and safety on highway segments plagued by work zone activities, transportation professionals in recent years have focused on exploring the potentials of using various merge and speed control strategies to regulate traffic flows. Contents. Chapter 1 Introduction Background Research Objectives and Scope Organization of Dissertation. A variety of ITS strategies improve the operation of the freeway system. Traffic surveillance systems use vehicle detectors and cameras to support freeway management applications. Traffic control measures on freeway entrance ramps, such as ramp meters, can use sensor data to optimize freeway travel speeds and ramp meter wait times. Lane managementFile Size: KB.

Quirements of merging control systems and system design specifications for freeway control by centralized digital computer. RAMP TRAFF1C CHARACTERISTICS Ramp-Vehicle Performance Characteristics In the peak-period control of a freeway system, it is normally necessary to bring all ramp vehicles to a stop before releasing them for a gap.

timal use of freeway gaps by merging ramp vehicles. Pursuant to these objectives, a multilevel design approach has been introduced as a means of decomposing the control function for a rational development of a freeway control system (1). This multilevel concept is directed toward establishing a hierarchy of levels of control, partly based.

Dynamic merge control can delay the onset of congestion. By increasing capacity for the higher volume flow and encouraging more uniform speeds, traffic flows more smoothly and efficiently resulting in improved travel time reliability.

Dynamic merge control can improve safety by reducing primary incidents. This research presents theoretically an automated vehicle merging control which is an important subsystem of AHS. The goal of the system is to automatically control the vehicle merging from ramp to the AHS lane in an efficient, smooth and safe manner.

The entire merging process is divided the a speed adjustment stage and a lane merging by: 3. Fully Automated Highway: Main Findings (3) there were concerns about: system reliability (especially from younger drivers and those familiar with technology) - surrendering control - cost to the vehicle owner and taxpayer likely to increase demand for motorway use, but likely to reduce demand for motorway use if used with tollsPicture 4.

The driver would then steer into a merging area, and the car would be guided through a gate onto an automated lane. An automatic control system would coordinate the movement of newly entering and existing traffic.

Once travelling in automated mode, the driver could relax until the turnoff. The reverse process would take the vehicle off the highway. In recent years, control systems have gained an increasingly importance in the development and advancement of the modern civilization and technology.

The safety of merging and diverging influence areas, intersections, interchanges, and other traffic facilities is assessed by tracking and analyzing police-reported motor vehicle crash records.

Since the nature of road crashes is random and infrequent, this process is slow to reveal the need for remediation of the roadway design and traffic.
