Global optimization framework for real-time route guidance via variable message sign

  title={Global optimization framework for real-time route guidance via variable message sign},
  author={Bai Liu and Ke Han and Jianming Hu},
Variable message sign (VMS) is an effective traffic management tool for congestion mitigation. The VMS is primarily used as a means of providing factual travel information or genuine route guidance to travelers. However, this may be rendered sub-optimal on a network level by potential network paradoxes and lack of consideration for its cascading effect on the rest of the network. This paper focuses on the design of optimal display strategy of VMS in response to real-time traffic information and… Expand

Data-driven linear decision rule approach for distributionally robust optimization of on-line signal control
The proposed signal control procedure is tested in a simulation environment that is informed by actual traffic data obtained in Glasgow, and demonstrates its full potential in on-line operation and deployability on realistic networks, as well as its effectiveness in improving traffic. Expand
Effects of Variable Message Signs (VMS) for Improving Congestions
Variable message signs (VMS) plays an important role in route guidance of drivers and release of traffic congestion. Response to VMS of drivers is acquired in stated preference (SP) investigation.Expand
Driver response to variable message signs: a stated preference investigation
It was found that not only is delay time more highly valued than normal travel time, which is to be expected, but that drivers become more sensitive to delay time as delay times increased across the range presented. Expand
Driver En Route Guidance Compliance and Driver Learning with Advanced Traveler Information Systems: Analysis with Travel Simulation Experiment
If real-time driver en route guidance advice does not meet driver preferences (e.g., preference for taking the freeway) or the advice is not correct, drivers are very likely to ignore theExpand
It was concluded that travel information is welcomed by the public, and drivers with different trip purposes and from different socio-demographic groups may respond differently to driver information systems. Expand
