About the Workshop. Mathematical Approaches for Traffic Flow Management Tutorials

The long program opens with four days of tutorials that will provide an introduction to major themes of the entire program and the four workshops. The goal is to build a foundation for the participants of this program who have diverse scientific backgrounds. Topics that will be discussed include:

  • A tutorials on estimation, including particle filtering, Kalman filtering, and model filtering.
  • An introduction to traffic flow on networks.
  • A primer on ramp metering, traffic signal, and/or variable speed limit control.
  • A tutorial on utilizing new (and big) datasets.

Registration for tutorials is free, to encourage broad participation.
