Visible to the public CPS: Synergy: Collaborative Research: Efficient Traffic Management: A Formal Methods Approach

This project is developing tools for traffic management and control using formal methods. By applying techniques such as model-checking and correct-byconstruction synthesis, we ensure that traffic flow satisfies high-level objectives expressed using temporal logics that guarantee desirable behavior such as avoiding congestion, maintaining high throughput, ensuring fairness of ramp metering strategies, and reacting to incidents or unexpected conditions.


Visible to the public Efficient Traffic Management - A Formal Methods Approach


This project is developing a formal methods approach to meet temporal logic specifications in traffic control. Formal methods is an area of computer science that develops efficient techniques for proving the correct operation of systems, such as computer programs and digital circuits, and for designing systems that are correct by construction. We have uncovered two key structural properties of traffic networks that make them amenable to this approach.
