ST03-Eco-Traffic Metering

Status

Existing

Description

The Eco–Traffic Metering service package determines the most environmentally efficient operation of traffic signals at freeway on–ramps to manage the rate of entering automobiles. This service package collects traffic and environmental data from roadside sensors and connected vehicles to allow on–ramp merge operations that minimize overall emissions, including traffic and environmental conditions on the ramp and on the freeway upstream and downstream of the ramp. Using this information, the service package determines a timing plan for the ramp meter based on current and predicted traffic and environmental conditions.
