To address the goal of providing drivers on
highways with guaranteed arrival times, we propose a traffic
management system that combines virtual slots with semiautonomous
driving to shape traffic and prevent congestion.
Two algorithms that address aligning vehicles into slots and
efficient merging from three to two lanes are proposed. Furthermore,
an implementation and evaluation of these algorithms
using the VISSIM traffic simulator is presented. Our initial
results indicate that a slot-based system has the potential to
be used to guarantee arrival times and provide a significant
overall increase in efficiency when compared against a human
