A fuzzy logic approach was proposed to regulate the number of vehicles entering a freeway entrance point during rush traffic times. The basic structure of a fuzzy logic controller was analyzed and the fuzzy control algorithm was formulated. The membership functions were developed and the fuzzy logic entrance ramp controller was designed based on such traffic information as the flow, speed, occupancy, and ramp queue length. These variables were each measured by several sensors built into the upstream, downstream, and entrance ramp portion of the freeway. Simulation research was carried out by taking full advantage of a computer. Simulation results show that such an approach is practical and effective. It can avoid traffic jams and congestion on the mainline, improve the passing capability, and make the vehicles travel more efficiently and safely.
