Since the road infrastructure will not be extended by the same rate as traffic demand increases, measures are being developed to optimize traffic flow on the existing roadnetwork. The control logic of well established control devices like traffic lights are continously refined as well as new devices like ramp metering and variable message signs are being developed. Furthermore traffic management searches for methods to influence traveller choices by pre-trip and on-trip information. New methods of information becomes viable due to new telecommunication devices. At the institute we are looking for new algorithms to utilize new information technology to improve traffic conditions on urban and interurban roads.
