Dynamic traffic management is an important approach to minimise the negative effects of increasing congestion. Measures such as ramp metering and route information, but also the traditional traffic signal control is used. The focus in designing traffic control plans has always been on local control. However, there is a tendency to come to a more centralised and network wide approach of traffic
control. The interaction between traffic management measures and the route choice behaviour of the road users then becomes an important aspect of the control strategy design. The work described in this paper shows that anticipatory control can contribute to a better use of the infrastructure in relation with policy objectives. The paper presents a framework for real-time integrated and
anticipatory traffic management. It uses model predictive control including route choice to optimize traffic management. It is tested for small networks with good results. The framework can be used as a basis for further research on this topic.
