With the ongoing rise of demand in traffic networks, congestion control has become of major importance for urban areas. In this paper, we introduce the notion of network utility maximization for boundary flow control of urban networks. We describe how maximizing the aggregate utility of the network leads to a fair allocation of network resources to… CONTINUE READING
