Metering Strategies Applied to Signalized Networksby Simon Peter Shepherd, Univ of Leeds, United Kingdom,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Pacific Rim TransTech Conference: Volume I: Advanced Technologies
Abstract: This paper describes the development and adaptation of ramp metering strategies for use in signalized networks. The strategies were developed in simulation environment using the micro-simulation model NEMIS. The paper concentrates on the strategies for signalized arterials, producing real time control strategies which can deal with the problems of over-saturation and blocking-back. The basic philosophy behind the strategies is to formulate the problem as a regulator problem, regulating the average link densities to a prespecified level.
