Route Reservation Architecture seems to be a reliable and durable traf?c congestion mitigation mechanism that can signi?cantly reduce drivers’ travel-times. In this framework, a Route Reservation controller is responsible for coordinating drivers’ departure times and routes to follow so as to arrive at their destination at the earliest time. Despite its great ef?ciency, its real-life implementation is a signi?cant challenge considering the size and the complexity of urban networks. This work investigates and develops all the modules required to realize the Route Reservation Architecture as a real-life traf?c and demand management mechanism. In doing so, this work proposes all the needed communication protocols and algorithmic methods that ensure its fast and reliable application and addresses any architecture’s scalability issues. The developed modules are evaluated over a large-scale urban area where a microscopic simulation serves as a realistic transportation network.
