Dynamic traffic assignment models involve hundreds of unknown parameters and consume considerable time for computation. Besides, the calibration process, which tries to calibrate demand (and supply) parameters to match the simulation output with real observations, is both methodologically and computationally challenging. Considering availability of the input data and field observations, the core of the OD (Origin-Destination) estimation is ...
Traffic signals and queues at intersections are major components of public transportation (transit) delay. Active transit signal priority (TSP) strategies are used as an effective way of reducing that delay. They can be divided in green split adjustment and phase resequencing measures. However, the effectiveness of TSP strategies is dependent on the traffic conditions, the frequency of priority requests, and their specific impact on the ...

Development of mathematical pilot models for fast-time ship manoeuvring simulation and traffic planning for harbour approach channels Ghent University
Ship manoeuvring simulation is widely applied when designing new navigation areas and for assessing channel safety. The research project uses intelligent control algorithms to develop a novel mathematical pilot model for fast-time manoeuvring simulations in complex situations and for shipping traffic planning. The results will be applied to selected cases in Flemish harbours and channels and in Chinese navigation areas.

Modeling mixed traffic networks KU Leuven
Future traffic networks will be mixed. In terms of traffic operations, it will consist of a co-existance of manual driving with all levels of automation of the driving task. In terms of routing decisions, we evolve towards a mix of autonomous decision makers (the current default case like you and me) and centrally dispatched fleets (e.g. ride-hailing services, city logistics fleet, shared automated taxis). Road authories will respond by ...
