Few Active Traffic Management measures proposed in the past consider the distinction of different vehicle classes. Examples of vehicle-class specific measures are truck lanes and high-occupancy/toll (HOT) lanes. We propose that the distinction of different vehicle classes, with different flow characteristics and societal and economic function,...

With current techniques, traffic monitoring and control is a data intensive process. Network control on a higher level, using high level variables, can make this process less data demanding. The macroscopic fundamental diagram relates accumulation, i.e. the number of vehicles in an area, to the network performance, but only holds for situations...

Disaster evacuation studies are important but difficult or impossible to conduct in the real world. Evacuation simulation in a virtual world can be an important tool to obtain data on the escape and choice behavior of people. However, to obtain accurate “realistic” data, the engagement of participants is a key challenge. Therefore, we describe...

An excess number of vehicles in a traffic network will reduce traffic performance. This reduction can be avoided by traffic management. In particular, traffic can be routed such that the bottlenecks are not oversaturated. The macroscopic fundamental diagram provides the relation between the number of vehicles and the network performance. One can...

In the last decade many multi class kinematic wave (MCKW) traffic ow models have been proposed. MCKW models introduce heterogeneity among vehicles and drivers. For example, they take into account differences in (maximum) velocities and driving style. Nevertheless, the models are macroscopic and the ow is modeled as a continuum flow, without...

Dynamic Traffic Management (DTM) aims to improve traffic conditions. DTM usually consists of two steps: first the current traffic is estimated, then appropriate control actions are determined based on that estimate. In order to estimate and control the traffic, a suitable traffic flow model that reproduces the properties of traffic well must be...

In previous work, we have explored the idea of dimensionality reduction and approximation of OD demand based on principal component analysis (PCA). In particular, we have shown how we can apply PCA to linearly transform the high dimensional OD matrices into the lower dimensional space without significant loss of accuracy. Next, we have defined a...

In this paper, the use of advanced traffic data is discussed to contribute to the ongoing debate about their applications in dynamic origin-destination (OD) estimation. This is done by discussing the advantages and disadvantages of traffic data with support of the findings of a benchmark study. The benchmark framework is designed to assess the...

Tehran is capital of Iran in wide metropolitan area. Large-scale disasters such as earthquakes in such a city cause many casualties and economical damage. One of the most effective risk mitigation actions in such disasters is emergency evacuation. This paper evaluates the dynamics of the vehicular traffic of Tehran under an evacuation condition....

We propose and analyze a generic multi-class kinematic wave traffic flow model: Fastlane. The model takes into account heterogeneity among driver-vehicle units with respect to speed and space occupancy: long vehicles with large headways (e.g. trucks) take more space than short vehicles with short headways (e.g. passenger cars). Moreover, and...

Literature shows that – under specific conditions – the macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD) describes a crisp relationship between the average flow (production) and the average density in an entire network. The limiting condition is that traffic conditions must be homogeneous over the whole network. Recent works describe hysteresis effects:...

One of the key problems faced by traffic management operators of large urban traffic networks is the lack of sufficient data to compute performance indicators. These indicators, such as travel time, queue length, loss hours, total time spent, are useful for both offline evaluation purposes, as well as online traffic control applications. In the...

Recent research has revealed that there exist large inter-driver differences in car-following behavior such that different car-following models may apply to different drivers. This study applies Bayesian techniques to the calibration of car-following models, where prior distributions on each model parameter are converted to posterior...
