A Dynamic Traffic Assignment Model for Highly Congested Urban Networks

  title={A Dynamic Traffic Assignment Model for Highly Congested Urban Networks},
  author={Moshe E. Ben-Akiva and E. Turner and Cristin M. Hall},
The management of severe congestion in complex urban networks calls for dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) models that can replicate real traffic situations with long queues and spillbacks. DynaMIT-P, a mesoscopic traffic simulation system, was enhanced and calibrated to capture the traffic characteristics in the city of Beijing, China. All demand and supply parameters were calibrated simultaneously using sensor counts and floating car travel time data. Successful calibration was achieved with… CONTINUE READING
