Abstract

This project is mainly focused on the study of a fully integrated tunnel control system, concentrating on efficiency levels of tunnel traffic and technical information acquisition, situation appraisal and action thereon, and dissemination of information to drivers. The work embraced defining recommendations on use and improvement of existing data acquisition subsystem equipment and traffic control schemes, reviewing existing underground-environment radio communication systems, exploring variable traffic signs, and reviewing existing access control systems. The objective of a recommendation for a fully open and modular system architecture integrating all tunnel requirements for improving safety, efficiency and cost reduction is achieved.
