Abstract: Due to the apparent capacity difference between Hsuehshan tunnel and its connected roadway segments, identifying the optimal activation time for available control strategies has emerged as a critical issue. This study presents an exploratory system that integrates an existing macroscopic model with a dynamic monitoring function that serves as the basis to guide the selection of a new set of parameters when the traffic condition within the tunnel is evolving into the unstable state. Using one year of field data, our experimental results show the promising properties of the system which can serve as the basis for guiding the activation of the control strategies
