A Secured and Optimized Lane Design
Lane Design for Optimal Traffic (LDOT) is considered as an effective tool to improve the level of traffic services. It integrates the newly emerged IT technologies with the traditional traffic engineering. By providing the traffic partners with better communications, LDOT can significantly boost the traffic managements and operations. Meanwhile, however, the deployment of the LDOT applications often involves a huge amount of investments, which may be discouraging in a challenging economy like now. Therefore how to increase the cost-effectiveness of the LDOT systems is a widely concerting issue. There has been a limited research effort on the optimization of the LDOT systems.
