Transportation networks

This is currently the main application domain of the NeCS team. Several interesting problems in this area capture many of the generic networks problems described above. For example, distributed collaborative algorithms can be devised for ramp-metering control and traffic-density balancing can be achieved using consensus concepts. The team is already strongly involved in this field, both this theoretical works on traffic modeling, prediction and control, and with the Grenoble Traffic Lab platform. These activities will be continued and strengthened, also thanks to the contributions from the new staff member M.L. Delle Monache.
