Intelligent Cooperative Sensing for Improved Traffic Efficiency

Professor Sadko Mandzuka

Abstract: Intelligent Cooperative Sensing for Improved traffic efficiency (ICSI) is new architecture approach of the ICT infrastructure for supporting Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) where intelligence for sensing and actuation is distributed over gateways, which host a software platform for running ITS applications, using the local storage and computation capabilities. The efficient distribution of context-rich data lays the foundations for novel traffic and travel management strategies which detect, prevent and avoid hazardous traffic situations. Intelligent control algorithms for cooperative Ramp Metering (RM) including Variable Speed Limit Control (VSLC) as demanding ITS services (high level of road safety demands, costly equipment) are tested by complex computer simulations. The results include an augmented version of the macroscopic highway traffic simulator CTMSIM, ANFIS based algorithm for cooperative ramp metering and Q-learning based local ramp metering algorithm.
