A Comparison of Traffic Models: Part 1, Framework


This report defines a framework for comparing dynamic traffic models. It emphasizes four dimensions: functionality, traffic dynamics, route choice dynamics, and overall network performance. The first dimension compares the models through a check-list of model functions. Regarding the last three comparison dimensions, a total of five networks and twelve scenarios are defined. These test scenarios are designed to accentuate model properties and differences. Also included in this report are a list of performance measures for comparison purposes, and a discussion of the interpretation of results.
