While connected and automated driving has seen broad attention in the ITS community, automation of processes in traffic management has not yet been studied widely. A new and revolutionary approach to analysis and automation of traffic management processes comes from the field of Quantitative Complexity Management. We here introduce approaches and an outline how traffic management will see entirely new ways of coping with semi automated driving and growing traffic by explicitly assessing the complexity of traffic. This approach, in turn, makes dealing with complexity as a design parameter a real possibility that opens the door to many exciting use cases. Managing complexity at a design level may well be a key to intelligent traffic management and to effectively taking advantage of the improvement opportunities expected from traffic automation. The necessity for traffic automation is partly driven by automated and connected drivi ng coming to market.
