Cooperative Congestion Management

Traffic congestion is a major issue in many urban areas, resulting in increased travel times, air pollution, and economic costs. Congestion management is critical to improving traffic flow, but traditional approaches based on central control and infrastructure investments have limitations. Cooperative congestion management control is a promising new approach that optimizes traffic flow by coordinating driving speeds of connected and automated vehicles. Using a recurrent bottleneck on I-680 as a case study, this presentation will explore the key concepts, benefits, and challenges of the system.
