Prediction of Lane Clearance Time of Freeway Incidents Using the M5P Tree Algorithm

  title={Prediction of Lane Clearance Time of Freeway Incidents Using the M5P Tree Algorithm},
  author={Chengjun Zhan and Albert Gan and Mohammed Hadi},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems},
A number of existing studies have attempted to predict freeway incident duration or incident clearance time. Because lane blockage is the main cause of congestion during freeway incidents, it is more beneficial to predict the lane clearance time instead of the incident clearance time for incidents that involve lane blockages. However, previous studies have not developed prediction models for the lane clearance time. This paper utilizes the M5P tree algorithm for lane clearance time prediction… CONTINUE READING
