This paper develops a theoretical approach to identify optimal traffic routing strategy for managing transportation systems. It obtains the optimal traffic diversion ratio to each route that can be achieved in real time through cutting-edge sensing and vehicle-infrastructure communication technologies. We minimize the expected total travel time of all travelers in the network by providing and updating routing advice (or incentives) to travelers in real time. The system-optimum traffic routing… CONTINUE READING
