    Författare :Albania Nissan; Haris N. Koutsopoulos; Tomer Toledo; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Motorway Control System; Mainline Control; Variable Speed Limits; Driver Behavior; Capacity; Intelligent Transport Systems; microsimulation model; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Mechanical energy engineering; Mekanisk energiteknik; Mechanical energy engineering; Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Variable Speed Limits (VSL) are often used to improve traffic conditions on congested motorways. VSL can be implemented as mandatory or advisory. The objective of the thesis isto study in detail the effectiveness of VSL. The focus is on both, design parameters and conditions under which VSL are most effective. LÄS MER
