Abstract

The project investigates the integration of Urban Traffic Control (UTC) and Dynamic Road Guidance (DRG) by reviewing the range of UTC and DRG systems available and assessing the potential for the improvement of UTC, by developing strategies and algorithms for DRG and for its integration with UTC, by developing functional specifications for the integration of existing DRG and UTC systems, and by producing guidelines for field trials of integrated systems. Driver responses and requirements are researched, in part by the development and use of the IGOR route choice simulator. In the development of strategies and algorithms, consideration is given to degree of penetration, level of integration, and the types of UTC and DRG system involved.
