De Schutter, "Decentralized model-based predictive control for urban traffic control," Proceedings of the 8th Triennial Symposium on Transportation Analysis (TRISTAN VIII), San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, 5 pp., June 2013.
In this paper, a centralized and a decentralized MPC scheme for the control of an urban traffic network are presented, using the S model as prediction model. We claim that with a decentralized MPC scheme it would be possible to control larger urban traffic networks, especially where due the growth of the number of variables and non-linearities of the urban traffic model, it would not be feasible to implement the centralized scheme in real time.
