Accurate queue estimation of traffic congestion at recurrent freeway bottlenecks is an important part of developing effective traffic control strategies. Two traffic flow analytical techniques are always employed in studying queuing processes: shockwave analysis and input-output analysis. These two techniques have been taken as separate tools for estimating queue length (size) in a number of studies. Shockwave analysis is particularly well-suited to evaluating the space occupied by the queuing… CONTINUE READING
