In this paper, a fuzzy traffic density homogenizer is proposed to alleviate or avoid congestion by smoothing the traffic density distribution profile over freeway lanes. The proposed fuzzy homogenizer consists of two parts: the fuzzy mean speed controller and the fuzzy on- ramp controller. Simulation results are used to demonstrate that the proposed controllers can eliminate traffic flow instabilities leading to smooth traffic flows.
