Calibration and operational analysis of variable speed limits for high flow condition
Jiang, Rui, Lucky, Adama B., & Chung, Edward (2011) Calibration and operational analysis of variable speed limits for high flow condition. In Matthew , Barth (Ed.)

Variable Speed Limits (VSL) is a control tool of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) which can enhance traffic safety and which has the potential to contribute to traffic efficiency. This study presents the results of a calibration and operational analysis of a candidate VSL algorithm for high flow conditions on an urban motorway of Queensland, Australia. The analysis was done using a framework consisting of a microscopic simulation model combined with runtime API and a proposed efficiency index. The operational analysis includes impacts on speed-flow curve, travel time, speed deviation, fuel consumption and emission.
