Title: TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT METHOD AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Abstract:
Traffic management method and traffic management system A traffic management method, for managing traffic of a transportation network, the method comprising the steps of (101) managing the traffic and the transportation network, according to a basis instruction timetable, (102) automatically detecting and/or predicting a conflict in the traffic, (103) generating a conflict solution in knowledge of the conflict, and (104) managing the traffic and the transportation network with a modified instruction timetable based on the generated conflict solution. In the invention, the step (103) of generating the conflict solution comprises the sub-steps of (105) automatically splitting the transportation network into a local part, in which the conflict is involved, and a complementary part distinct from the local part, (107) automatically generating a local solution relative only to the local part, (108) automatically generating a complementary solution relative only to the complementary part, the complementary solution being generated in consideration of the local solution, and (109) automatically combining the local and complementary solutions for obtaining the conflict solution.
