Kotsialos, A. and Papageorgiou, M. (2004) 'Efficiency and equity properties of freeway network-wide ramp metering with AMOC.', Transportation research part C : emerging technologies., 12 (6). pp. 401-420.
The Advanced Motorway Optimal Control (AMOC) strategy for optimal freeway network-wide ramp metering is applied to the ring-road of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in the aim of investigating some important and interesting problems arising in ubiquitous ramp metering systems. A number of suitably chosen scenarios along with a thorough analysis, interpretation, and suitable visualization of the obtained results provide a basis for the better understanding of some complex interrelationships of competing performance criteria. More precisely, the strategys efficiency and equity properties as well as their trade-off are studied and their partially competitive behaviour is discussed. This trade-off is implicitly addressed by the AMOC strategy through consideration of the available ramp storage space and may be used as a tool to establish a desired policy of the system's efficiency versus equity.
