What you’ll learn

Aimed to develop your understanding of contemporary topics in traffic flow theory and their applications. You will be introduced to fundamental traffic variables and relationships and examine how they are used to represent both microscopic and macroscopic traffic flow conditions. Analytic techniques appropriate to the design and operation of traffic systems are considered for both interrupted and uninterrupted flow situations.

On completion of this unit you will be able to:

  • Describe advanced contemporary traffic flow theories and apply to solve practical traffic problems
  • Perform traffic data analysis methodologically
  • Apply analytical techniques in the design and operation of traffic systems
  • Evaluate the role of Intelligent Transport Systems in Dynamic Traffic Management
