In this section you can easily find finished and unfinished projects – work in progress. See what questions are being researched right now and check out the details of our projects.
All our practical projects aim to develop useful knowledge for real-life traffic related issues.
The projects in this section are well described, making it easy to see what aspects of a certain topic or question are being covererd. The moment a project is finished, the related report will be included.
Below we have listed all ITS Edulab’s projects, finished and unfinished, in alphabetical order.
Coordination of ramp metering control in a motorway network
This graduation project studies a new control algorithm for ramp metering. Ramp metering has been introduced on the Amsterdam A10 motorway ringroad almost 20 years… Read More
Coordination of traffic control with in-car route guidance
Traffic control measures aim at improving traffic conditions or minimizing externalities caused by road traffic. These measures are usually optimized… Read More
Data fusion of loop detection and travel time measurements
Traffic management needs a good estimation of the current situation on the road network. The project investigates if data fusion… Read More
Dealing with daily traffic congestion and its probabilistic nature
In the past decades, traffic congestion on the Dutch motorway network has developed into a serious problem. The extension of… Read More
Design and evaluation of integrated traffic management in Beijing
Beijing, the capacity city of China, is experiencing astonishing development in the past decade. Accompanied by economic development is the… Read More
Dynamic OD matrix estimation using floating car data
Travel demand in terms of an Origin-Destination (OD) matrix is an essential input for network traffic assignment and traffic simulation… Read More
Effect of speed limits on the capacity
Many sections of freeways in the Netherlands have experienced an increase in the legal limit since the implementation of the 130… Read More
Effectiveness of ramp metering with automated vehicles
As a self-organizing system, the trafﬁc system is quite complicated. There are many disturbance factors to lead to various trafﬁc… Read More
Effectiveness of rush-hour lanes and plus-lanes
Managed lanes have been operational in the Netherlands since 1996. They are intended as a measure to increase capacity without… Read More
Effects of DTM on the MFD for large networks
Recently, a new concept called macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD) was proposed, relating trip completion rate and the number of vehicles… Read More
