Parameterized MPC to reduce dispersion of road traffic emissions

S.K. Zegeye, B. De Schutter, J. Hellendoorn, and E.A. Breunesse, "Parameterized MPC to reduce dispersion of road traffic emissions," Proceedings of the 2011 American Control Conference, San Francisco, California, pp. 4428-4433, June-July 2011.

This paper has two main contributions. First, it presents a simple area-wide emission (or dispersion) model for a freeway traffic networks. The model takes the variation of the wind speed and direction into account. Second, it presents a nonlinear parametrized MPC controller for freeway traffic systems. Next, the proposed model and control approach are illustrated with a simulation-based case study. The simulation results show improved traffic performance with respect to the uncontrolled system.
