Urban Perimeter Control

Perimeter (gating) control for urban road traffic network

- Perimeter control: an alternative traffic control concept to protect city center or a dense urban area against insatiate demands during rush hours.
- The optimization goal is to ensure stable and uncongested traffic in the protected network.
- Application of nonlinear Model Predictive Control based on the macroscopic fundamental diagram.
- In this concept, the control measures are performed by the traffic signal controllers at the boundary of the network.
