      Traffic Density Control for Automated Highway Systems 

      Chien, C. -C; Zhang, Y.; Ioannou, Petros A. (1997)
      Traffic flow instabilities such as traffic congestion are often caused by ad hoc and inappropriate speeds and headways that humans choose when they operate their vehicles. In an automated highway system (AHS) environment, ...
