Experimental Studies of Traffic Incident Management with Pricing, Private Information, and Diverse Subjects - Second Year

This task is a succersor to Task ID 2804. By expanding the project study’s scope beyond public Variable Message Sign (VMS) into the domain of Private Traffic Information Systems (PTIS), the project aim to help system operators take advantage of the latest advancements in system-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-vehicle communications to aide their ability to efficiently manage non-recurrent traffic incidents. Finally, the project study of a value of time (VoT) auction based approach to high-occupancy toll (HOT) lane management aims to use HOT lanes more efficiently to enhance the performance of existing freeway capacity while minimizing the travel delay costs and maximizing satisfaction for users.
