OD flows provide important information for traffic management and planning. The prediction of dynamic OD matrices gives the possibility to apply anticipatory traffic management measures. In this paper, we propose an OD prediction approach based on the data obtained by Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras. The principal component...

Data recorded by Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras can be used to determine several important traffic characteristics, such as real time travel time, travel time statistics, travel time reliability and OD matrices. In this paper ANPR data collected in Chinese city Changsha have been validated. Travel time extracted from ANPR...

All drivers have individual ways of driving. Still, there are groups of drivers with more or less similar characteristics. In this research, 28 drivers from Chengdu city (P.R. China) participated in an experiment where car following behaviour was measured with GPS devices. In every measured trip there was a leading and following vehicle both...

The macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD) is a graphical method used to characterize the traffic state in a road network and to monitor and evaluate the effect of traffic management. For the determination of an MFD, both traffic volumes and traffic densities are needed. This study introduces a methodology to determine an MFD using combined...

The decision making of travelers for route choice and departure time choice depends on the expected travel time and its reliability. A common understanding of reliability is that it is related to several statistical properties of the travel time distribution, especially to the standard deviation of the travel time and also to the skewness....

Urban travel times are rather variable as a result of a lot of stochastic factors both in traffic flows, signals, and other conditions on the infrastructure. However, the most common way both in literature and practice is to estimate or predict only expected travel times, not travel time distributions. By doing so, it fails to provide full...

The importance of travel time reliability in traffic management, control, and network design has received a lot of attention in the past decade. In this paper, a network travel time distribution model based on the Johnson curve system is proposed. The model is applied to field travel time data collected by Automated Number Plate Recognition ...

Fuel consumption and atmospheric pollution emissions of vehicles depend on driving conditions, the characteristics of the driver and the car. The influence of driving style on the environmental aspects of a car journey has been investigated. Driver characteristics were determined by a Driver Behaviour Questionnaire and observed acceleration...

Start taking a few most applied scenarios from a traffic control centre, analysing each component and structure of the whole, and evaluating the impact of each component and some typical combinations, based on available monitoring systems. Carrying on such initial research on best practices, we build a dynamic simulation model, including these...

Traffic is tightly related to the social and economic development in a country. In China the development of the economy has been very fast in the past 30 years and this is still continuing. The transport infrastructure shows a similar pattern, while traffic is also rapidly growing. In urban areas this growth has led to severe congestion problems...

Driver behavior in China shows remarkable differences from that in western countries. In this study, six focus groups were organized to investigate Chinese drivers’ attitudes, expectations, intended actions, their preferences, and habits in different situations in urban areas. The outcomes show that there are important opportunities to improve...

Traffic management in cities with congestion is a big challenge with still unused opportunities. Intersection control is a corner stone but this should be done in an area-wide context. The dominant traffic process on urban roads is the traffic flow on the intersections. Spill back is a most important cause of malfunctioning networks. The...

Traffic volume and queue length are two important variables to identify traffic states in urban areas. Loop detectors are often used for monitoring traffic. A prominent weakness of loop detector data is the limited reliability due to equipment malfunctions and communication faults. This paper presents a method to identify the validity of loop...

Prediction of traffic demand is essential, either for an understanding of the future traffic state or so necessary measures can be taken to alleviate congestion. Usually, an origin-destination (O-D) matrix is used to represent traffic demand between two zones in transportation planning. Vehicles are assumed to be homogeneous; the trips of each...

Calibrated simulation models taking into account adverse weather conditions can be used to optimise traffic management strategies, such as speed adaptation and signal timing optimisation. On snowy road conditions, car following behaviour changes because drivers tend to accelerate more slowly, increase their following distance and drive with...

There is a growing awareness that road networks, are becoming more and more vulnerable to unforeseen disturbances like incidents and that measures need to be taken in order to make road networks more robust. In order to do this the following questions need to be addressed: How is robustness defined? Against which disturbances should the network...

In many road networks all over the world unexpectedly large delays occur as a result of unforeseen disturbances like incidents. Robustness measures can be taken to reduce these costs. In this paper we focus on network structure related robustness measures like adding spare capacity, creating parallel routes that are spread in a balanced way over...

Micro simulation programs are often used to assess the quality of traffic conditions. They are especially suited to evaluate possible control scenarios in advance, so that the scenarios can be selected and optimized before implementation. Of course, the simulation programs should be valid for the traffic situation that has to be modeled with...

The travel time is an important measure for the quality of traffic. This paper discusses a few methods to measure or estimate the travel time in urban road networks. First of all, it is important to know that urban travel times display a large variation, so that the measurement of a single (average) travel time is not so meaningful. The travel...
