Research on Variable-Lane Control Method on Urban Road

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 905)


There is a kind of phenomenon of unbalanced road resources distribution in the city traffic congestion, called tidal traffic. In order to resolve the phenomenon of traffic congestion caused by the above reasons and improve the road capacity, a bi-level planning model is established based on the entire regional road network optimization. The total impedance of system, namely the control region is minimized in the upper level and Beckmann model is applied in the lower level and harmony ant colony algorithm is designed to solve the integer planning model. Finally, the proposed model is verified by practical examples. Results show that the new proposed lane adjustment method in this paper can solve the problem of “tidy traffic” effectively.
