Abstract

Adaptive speed limits (ASLs) is a promising technique that can be used to enhance the driving conditions on various road types. Consequently, a tremendous reduction in social costs can be achieved in areas such as accidents, pollution, congestion, noise, and greenhouse gas emissions. One of the essential factors in determining the efficiency of variable speed limit traffic systems is the dissemination of the adjusted speed limit. Several research studies indicate that in-vehicle driver notification significantly outperforms dynamic roadside speed limit signs.
