Traffic Simulation with DynaMIT
2010 (English)In: Fundamentals of Traffic Simulation, Springer, 2010, 363-398 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
DynaMIT (Dynamic Network Assignment for the Management of Information to Travelers) is a dynamic traffic assignment model system that estimates and predicts traffic. DynaMIT is also a real-time system for decision support at traffic management centers for generation of predictive traffic information. A planning version also exists. DynaMIT captures the dynamic performance of the network (e.g., lane-based queuing and spillback effects), travel behavior, its sensitivity to traffic conditions and available traffic information, and consistency between demand and supply. DynaMIT consists of a demand simulator, a supply simulator, and algorithms that capture demand and supply interactions. Methodologies for the online and offline estimation of OD flows and the offline and online calibration of various inputs and parameters (such as network performance parameters) have been developed as well. Several case studies from the United States, Europe, and Asia are discussed, and a distributed version of DynaMIT is also presented.
