Travel Time Prediction using Tree-Based Ensembles

  title={Travel Time Prediction using Tree-Based Ensembles},
  author={He Huang and Martin Pouls and Anne Meyer and Markus Pauly},
In this paper, we consider the task of predicting travel times between two arbitrary points in an urban scenario. We view this problem from two temporal perspectives: long-term forecasting with a horizon of several days and short-term forecasting with a horizon of one hour. Both of these perspectives are relevant for planning tasks in the context of urban mobility and transportation services. We utilize tree-based ensemble methods that we train and evaluate on a dataset of taxi trip records…
