Mathematical Optimization and Machine Learning for Efficient Urban Traffic

Traffic jams cause economical damage which has been estimated between 10 and 100 billion Euros per year in Germany, also due to inefficient urban traffic. It is currently open how the situation will change with upcoming technological advances in autonomous and electric mobility. On the one hand, autonomous cars may lead to an increased number … Read more

Autonomous traffic at intersections: an optimization-based analysis of possible time, energy, and CO2 savings

In the growing field of autonomous driving, traffic-light controlled intersections as the nodes of large traffic networks are of special interest. We want to analyze how much an optimized coordination of vehicles and infrastructure can contribute to a more efficient transit through these bottlenecks. In addition, we are interested in sensitivity of the results with … Read more
