      Roadway traffic controller design for automated highway systems 

      Chien, C. C.; Zhang, Y.; Stotsky, A.; Ioannou, Petros A. (IEEE, 1994)
      For manual driving, the traffic flow is often irregular, unstable leading to congestion and to low traffic flow rate during minor incidents. These irregularities are due to variation of vehicle speeds and headways that are ...
