A link layer controller for the PATH AHS architecture is presented. The control of vehicle traffic in a multilane stretch of highway is considered. Vehicles axe assumed to be of different types and have different destination. Based on a conservation of vehicles model and Lyapunov techniques, a velocity control is derived. This controller stabilizes vehicular density and velocity along the highway to predetermined profiles. Performance is illustrated by simulation results.
