Abstract

The paper proposes the estimation of unmeasured variables of traffic systems for traffic control purposes. The presented method proposes constrained state estimation of unmeasured traffic variable such as turning rates. The weighted constrained state approach uses moving horizon along the state trajectory, which permits to handle equality and inequality constraints belonging to nature of the traffic model. A numerical example illustrates the importance of constrained estimation and shows a possible switch control system between two control light stages.
