Impacts of Traffic Management 2014

Knowledge about the impacts of traffic management is useful and necessary, both for policy making as for the operations in a traffic control centre. For example on a strategic level this knowledge is used to consider and assess investment alternatives and on an operational level it is used to tune and improve traffic control scenarios. In The Netherlands a lot of attention has been paid to the evaluation of traffic management measures. Since 2008 an overview exists in which the results of all evaluation studies in The Netherlands are summarised. Recently TrafficQuest has updated this summary with the latest studies and now 180 studies are included. These studies are referenced in this list and the results are given in this overview (in Dutch).

Research on the use of incar data for speed estimation

Wednesday December 18th Lisa Priem graduated as a master of science in applied mathematics from Delft University of Technology. She did her research within the ITS Edulab, a cooperation between Rijkswaterstaat and Delft University. Her research was about the use of data from the vehicle (the so-called uCAN data) to estimate the speed of the traffic on a location. Because uCAN data is not available in reality yet, she used simulation to show that about 30% of the vehicles should be equipped with a uCAN unit to get an accurate estimate of the speed. Accurate in the sense that it meets the requirements the Dutch National Data Warehouse for Traffic Information has set. More information and the report can be found on this internet page.

TrafficQuest attended ISTTT20

The International Syposium on Transportation and Traffic Theory, held in Noordwijk from July 17-19, 2013, was a big succes. The world-leading scientists in traffic and transport presented the most remarkable new resuls of research over the past two years. These scientists are mainly interested in the theoretical aspects of their work. The attendence of TrafficQuest at this conference was relevant to take notice of these new findings and to bridge the gap to practice.
