Source: Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 2008. "The Netherlands: A Broader Horizon".
This synthesis explores Active Traffic Management (ATM) technologies and techniques in use in the U.S. and Europe, but primarily focuses on the more mature ATM technologies in Europe. The synthesis provides the European perspective of the lessons learned, experiences, operations results, and benefits associated with ATM techniques such as variable speed management, shoulder or line management, junction control, and directional routing. The synthesis concludes with potential benefits and challenges of deploying system-wide ATM applications in the U.S.
