Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to correctly classify traffic control and traffic management methods and procedures.
 
They will be able to describe the requirements and challenges of traffic control from an operational point of view.
 
Students will be able to apply the traffic flow theory to traffic control procedures. In doing so, they will be able to evaluate urban traffic disturbances and highway traffic control correctly in order to be able to make recommendations for control procedures. Students will also be able to take the operational view of traffic into account.
 
In addition, students will be capable of applying methodological approaches and explaining the data standards used.
 
Students will be able to describe the technical requirements of cooperative systems (Car2X) on the infrastructure and be able to assign them to vehicle-related applications.
 
The goal of this module is to enable students to analyze future development trends in traffic management and assess their effects.
