Scholarcy highlights

  • This paper uses the method of kinematic waves, developed in part I, but may be read independently
  • A functional relationship between flow and concentration for traffic on crowded arterial roads has been postulated for some time, and has experimental backing
  • It is suggested that it will move slightly slower than the mean vehicle speed, and that vehicles passing through it will have to reduce speed rather suddenly on entering it, but can increase speed again only very gradually as they leave it
  • This paper was recommended for publication in revised form by Associate Editor Christos Cassandras under the direction of Editor Tamer Ba┼čar.11A macroscopic traffic density controller for an automated highway system is designed, analyzed and simulated based on a discrete-time traffic flow model
