    An Interactive Tool for Collecting Traveler Behavior Information2008Inngår i: Proceedings of the 87th Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting, Jan. 2008, 2008Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Understanding driver behavior and response to traffic information is necessary in order toachieve the maximum benefit from Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS). This paperdescribes the development of a travel simulator to collect information on driver route choice inresponse to traffic information. A main feature of the simulator is the realistic representation ofmultiple traffic information sources (currently VMS and radio messages). Furthermore, thesimulator is one of the first Internet-based travel simulators, and the only one that accuratelysimulated the driving task. The simulator consists of collection of pre-trip information anddefault route information followed by multiple simulated trips with varying incidents and trafficinformation. The simulator is evaluated and measures well against established guidelines fortravel simulator development. Results will be discussed in future papers as data collection usingthe simulator is ongoing as of August 2007.

    The matching problem of empty vehicle redistribution in autonomous taxi systems2018Inngår i: The 9th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT 2018) / The 8th International Conference on Sustainable Energy Information Technology (SEIT-2018) / Affiliated Workshops, Elsevier, 2018, Vol. 130, s. 119-125Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses empty vehicle redistribution algorithms for PRT and autonomous taxi services from a passenger service perspective. In modern literature reactive methods such as nearest neighbours are commonly used. In this article we first formulate the general matching problem on a bipartite graph of available vehicles and stations. In addition, we propose a new index-based proactive redistribution (IBR) algorithm based on predicted near-future demand at stations. Test results of six variations of combined proactive and reactive strategies on a test case in Saclay, France with 20 stations and 100 vehicles are given. The combined Nearest Neighbour / IBR provides a promising solution for both peak and off-peak demand, significantly outperforming all other methods considered, in terms of passenger waiting time (both average and maximum) as well as in terms of station queue lengths.

    Empty vehicle redistribution in autonomous taxi services2019Inngår i: EURO Journal on Transportation and Logistics, ISSN 2192-4376, E-ISSN 2192-4384, Vol. 8, nr 5, s. 745-767Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we investigate empty vehicle redistribution algorithms for Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) or autonomous station-based taxi services, from a passenger service perspective. We present a new index-based redistribution (IBR) algorithm that improves upon existing nearest neighbour and indexing algorithms by incorporating expected passenger arrivals and predicted waiting times into the surplus/deficit index. We evaluate six variations of algorithms on a test case in Paris Saclay, France. The results show that especially the combination of Simple Nearest Neighbours + Index Based Redistribution provides promising results for both off-peak and rush-hour demand, outperforming the other methods tested, in terms of passenger waiting time (average and maximum) as well as station queue lengths.

    Empty vehicle redistribution and fleet size in autonomous taxi systems2019Inngår i: IET Intelligent Transport Systems, ISSN 1751-956X, E-ISSN 1751-9578, Vol. 13, nr 4, s. 677-682Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates empty vehicle redistribution algorithms for personal rapid transit and autonomous taxi services. The focus is on passenger service and operator cost. A new redistribution algorithm is presented in this study: index-based redistribution (IBR). IBR is a proactive method, meaning it takes into account both current demand and anticipated future demand, in contrast to reactive methods, which act based on current demand only. From information on currently waiting for passengers, predicted near-future demand and projected arrival of vehicles, IBR calculates an index for each vehicle station, and redistribution is done based on this index. Seven different algorithm combinations are evaluated using a test case in Paris Saclay, France (20 stations and 100 vehicles). A combination of simple nearest neighbours and IBR is shown to be promising. Its results outperform the other methods tested in peak and off-peak demand, in terms of average and maximum passenger waiting times as well as station queue length. The effect of vehicle fleet size on generalised cost is analysed. Waiting times, mileage and fleet size are taken into account while assessing this generalised cost.

    Hybrid microscopic-mesoscopic traffic simulation2004Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Traffic simulation is an important tool for modelling the operations of dynamic traffic systems and helps analyse the causes and potential solutions of traffic problems such as congestion and traffic safety. Microscopic simulation models provide a detailed representation of the traffic process, which makes them most suitable for evaluation of complicated traffic facilities and Intelligent Transportation Systems that often consist of complex traffic management, safety and information systems. Macroscopic and mesoscopic models on the other hand, capture traffic dynamics in lesser detail, but are faster and easier to apply and calibrate than microscopic models. Therefore they are most suitable for modelling large networks, while microscopic models are usually applied to smaller areas.

    The objective of this thesis is to combine the strengths of both modelling approaches and diminish their individual weaknesses by constructing a hybrid mesoscopic-microscopic model that applies microscopic simulation to areas of specific interest, while simulating a surrounding network in lesser detail with a mesoscopic model.

    Earlier attempts at hybrid modelling have concentrated on integrating macroscopic and microscopic models and have proved difficult due to the large difference between the continuous-flow representation of traffic in macroscopic models and the detailed vehicle-and driver-behaviour represented in microscopic models. These problems are solved in this thesis by developing a mesoscopic vehicle-based and event-based model that avoids the (dis)aggregation problems of traffic flows at the inter-model boundaries. In addition, this thesis focuses on the general problems of consistency across the entire hybrid model.

    The requirements are identified that are important for a hybrid model to be consistent across the models at different levels of detail. These requirements vary from network and route-choice consistency to consistency of traffic dynamics across the boundaries of the micro- and mesoscopic submodels. An integration framework is proposed that satisfies these requirements. This integration framework has been implemented in a prototype hybrid model, MiMe, which is used to demonstrate the correctness of the solutions to the various integration issues. The hybrid model integrates MITSIMLab, a microscopic traffic simulation model, and Mezzo, the newly developed mesoscopic model. Both the hybrid model and the new Mezzo model are applied in a number of case studies, including a network in the North of Stockholm, which show their validity and applicability. The results are promising and support both the proposed integration architecture and the importance of integrating microscopic and mesoscopic models.

    Incident management and traffic information: Simulation-based traffic prediction2009Inngår i: 16th ITS World Congress, 2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Incident response and mitigation are the main tasks of operators at traffic control centres. Simulation models have a good chance of reproducing and predicting the effects of incident response by explicitly modelling drivers' responses to the incident and provided information. In the PREDIKT project, sponsored by the Swedish National Road Administration, a state-of-the-art mesoscopic simulation model (MEZZO) has been extended to provide decision support for incident management. In this paper we describe and test a number of essential modelling components such as modelling the incident response logic, a mixed-Logit model and a method for generation of alternative routes for drivers' route switching. In addition we present the results of a fast calibration method based on Simultaneous Perturbation Statistic Approximation (SPSA). The model components are tested in a small case study that investigates the impact of delay in information after incidents.

    DYMOBUS: dynamic mesoscopic modelling of bus public transport2009Inngår i: Conference proceedings to ITS 2009 conference, 2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In today’s public bus transport punctuality is one of the main problems to deal with for traffic planners and operators, especially in large cities such as Stockholm. The current static models do not handle congestion delays and the interaction between bus and car traffic, leading to overly optimistic timetables and hard to manage delays. In the DYMOBUS project (Funded by VINNOVA and City of Stockholm) a dynamic modelling tool was developed in order to study these interactions. This paper discusses a mesoscopic, mixed-traffic, a transit simulation model designed to support evaluation of operations planning and control, especially in the context of Advanced Public Transportation Systems (APTS). Examples of applications include frequency determination, evaluation of real time control strategies for schedule maintenance and restoration from major disruptions. The transit simulation component is designed to represent realistically the uncertainty in operations, in order to assess service reliability. The simulation models all sources of uncertainty: chaining of trips, travel time variability, behavior at stops and a detailed representation of passenger demand at the various stops. Unlike most previous efforts in this area, the simulation model is built on the platform of a mesoscopic traffic simulation model, which allows modeling of the operations of large-scale transit systems. A Tel-Aviv case study demonstrates the transit simulation capabilities of the model.

    Hybrid Traffic Simulation Models: Vehicle loading at meso-micro boundaries2019Inngår i: Transport Simulation, CRC Press , 2019, s. 27-42Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Traffic simulation models, especially microscopic ones, are becoming increasingly popular and are being used to address a wide range of problems, from planning to operations. However, for applications with large-scale networks, microscopic models are impractical because of input data and calibration requirements. Hybrid models that combine simulation models at different levels of detail have the potential to address these practical issues. This chapter presents a framework for implementing meso-micro hybrid models which facilitates a consistent representation of traffic dynamics. Furthermore, the chapter carries out a detailed examination of an important element impacting the consistent representation of traffic dynamics, i.e., the loading of vehicles from the meso- to the micro-model. A new loading method is presented demonstrating a superior performance as compared to existing approaches. The method is useful not only in the context of hybrid models, but also for microscopic models on their own. A case study illustrates the importance of the method in improving the fidelity of both hybrid and pure microscopic models.

    Vehicle loading in traffic simulation models2007Inngår i: Proceedings of the 86th Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting, 2007Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Microscopic traffic simulation models are becoming increasingly popular and used to address a wide range of problems, from planning to operations. Furthermore, hybrid models that combine mesoscopic and microscopic models to simulate large scale networks are emerging. Despite the significant progress though, a potentially important process, the loading of vehicles onto the network, has not received much attention. If vehicles are assigned their initial speeds improperly, especially in congested networks, unnecessary turbulence may be created that will result in artificially reduced capacity of the loading link. The paper reviews existing loading methods (employed by the state of the art models MITSIMLab and VISSIM) and demonstrates the sensitivity of the simulation results to the initial speed. The results show that loading has a significant effect on the initial acceleration behavior of the loaded vehicles, and the (implied) capacity of the first segment of the entry link. The paper proposes four alternative loading approaches and identifies one as theoretically sound and consistent. A case study demonstrates that the new method is robust, and performs well even under congested conditions. The proposed method is useful not only for loading vehicles in microscopic models but also in the context of hybrid models for transferring vehicles from the meso to the micro network.

    A Discrete-Event Mesoscopic Traffic Simulation Model for Hybrid Traffic Simulation2006Inngår i: IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference, 2006. ITSC'06, IEEE , 2006, s. 1102-1107Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper presents a mesoscopic traffic simulation model, particularly suited for the development of integrated meso-micro traffic simulation models. The model combines a number of the recent advances in simulation modeling, such as discrete-event time resolution and combined queue-server and speed-density modeling, with a number of new features such as the ability to integrate with microscopic models to create hybrid traffic simulation. The ability to integrate with microscopic models extends the area of use to include evaluation of ITS systems, which often require the detailed modeling of vehicles in areas of interest, combined with a more general modeling of large surrounding areas to capture network effects of local phenomena. The paper discusses the structure of the model, presents a framework for integration with micro models, and illustrates its validity through a case study with a congested network north of Stockholm. It also compares its performance with a hybrid model applied to the same network.

    Hybrid Mesoscopic-Microscopic Traffic Simulation2005Inngår i: Transportation Research Record, ISSN 0361-1981, E-ISSN 2169-4052, Vol. 1934, s. 218-225Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Traffic simulation is an important tool for modeling the operations of dynamic traffic systems. Although microscopic simulation models provide a detailed representation of the traffic process, macroscopic and mesoscopic models capture the traffic dynamics of large networks in less detail but without the problems of application and calibration of microscopic models. This paper presents a hybrid mesoscopic-microscopic model that applies microscopic simulation to areas of specific interest while simulating a large surrounding network in less detail with a mesoscopic model. The requirements that are important for a hybrid model to be consistent across the models at different levels of detail are identified. These requirements vary from the network and route choice consistency to the consistency of the traffic dynamics at the boundaries of the microscopic and mesoscopic submodels. An integration framework that satisfies these requirements is proposed. A prototype hybrid model is used to demonstrate the application of the integration framework and the solution of the various integration issues. The hybrid model integrates MlTSIMLab, a microscopic traffic simulation model, and Mezzo, a newly developed mesoscopic model. The hybrid model is applied in two case studies. The results are promising and support both the proposed architecture and the importance of integrating microscopic and mesoscopic models.

    Incident response and mitigation are among the main tasks of operators at traffic control centers. Simulation models have a good chance of reproducing and predicting the effects of incident response by explicitly modeling driver response to the incident and information provided. In the PREDIKT project sponsored by the Swedish National Road Administration, the state-of-the-art mesoscopic simulation model MEZZO was extended to provide decision support for incident management.

In addition, the results of a fast calibration method based on simultaneous perturbation statistic approximation are presented. The model components are tested in a small case study that investigates the effect of delay in providing information to drivers after incidents. A linearization of speed-density functions also is shown to improve computational performance by 30% and increase calibration speed and stability while preserving simulation accuracy.

    Impacts of Shared Autonomous Taxis in a Metropolitan Area2015Inngår i: Proceedings of the 94th annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board, Washington DC, 2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to provide an analysis of potential benefits of a fleet of shared autonomous taxis “aTaxis”, in this paper referred to as Shared Autonomous Vehicles  (SAV)) when replacing private car commuter trips in a metropolitan area. We develop a framework for dynamic allocation of SAVs to passenger trips, empty-vehicle routing and multi-criteria evaluation with regard to passenger waiting time, trip times and fleet size. Using a dynamic representation of current private vehicle demand for the Stockholm metropolitan area and a detailed network representation, different scenarios (varying levels of accepted passenger waiting time at origin and accepted % increase in travel time) are compared with respect to passenger travel time, number of vehicles needed and vehicle mileage. The results indicate that an SAV-based personal transport system has the potential to provide an on-demand door-to-door transport with a high level of service, using 5 % of today's private cars and parking places. In order to provide an environmental benefit and to reduce total mileage, an SAV-based personal transport system requires users to accept ride-sharing, allowing a maximum 30% increase of their travel time (13% on average) and a start time window of 10 minutes.

    Hybrid traffic simulation with adaptive signal control2007Inngår i: Transportation Research Record, ISSN 0361-1981, E-ISSN 2169-4052, nr 1999, s. 191-197Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A hybrid mesoscopic-microscopic model is implemented that applies microscopic simulation to areas of specific interest while simulating a large surrounding network in lesser detail with a mesoscopic model. The hybrid model integrates VisSim, a microscopic traffic simulation model, and Mezzo, a recently developed mesoscopic model. The hybrid model is applied on a network in which Mezzo simulates the entire area (6,000 links) of Stockholm, Sweden, and VisSim simulates the area of specific interest, containing three intersections with adaptive signal control with bus-priority functions. The adaptive signal control and bus-priority functions are simulated by a separate signal controller simulator (EC-1 simulator) that interacts with the hybrid Mezzo-VisSim model and thereby provides the actual signal changes that would take place in the field. Two alternative control schemes are evaluated with the hybrid setup: the original fixed-time control and the new adaptive control. The results show clear improvement in terms of travel times, delays, and stops with the new adaptive control scheme. They also show that although these improvements for the local (microlevel) area attract additional traffic from the surrounding (mesolevel) area, the net effects both locally and networkwide remain positive in terms of travel times, average number of stops, and delay. Moreover, this study demonstrates the advantages of hybrid simulation in evaluation of complicated adaptive traffic control in which both local detailed effects and network effects need to be studied.

    Trut - information search cost and benefits of traffic information (sweden)2008Inngår i: World Congr. Intell. Transp. Syst. ITS Am. Annu. Meet., 2008, s. 6685-6688Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Benefits from traffic information examined using three methods; focus groups, stated preference-studies (SP) as well as simulated work-trips on the internet. The SP-results show that that there is a clear relationship between message content and the valuation. They also show that the value of decreasing uncertainty, when informed about a travel time delay with ± 10 minutes, corresponds to SEK 3.80 (EUR 0.4). The travel simulation shows that radio messages in general have a larger effect than VMS messages on route choice. Repeated information has however an impact, since a large share of the respondents who did not switch route at the first decision point, switched at the next decision point where updated information was given.

    Abstract [en]

    Analysis of public transport system performance and level of service in urban areas is essential. Dynamic modeling of traffic conditions, passenger demand, and transit operations is important to represent adequately the complexity of and the interactions between these components in modern public transportation systems. This paper presents a transit simulation model designed to support evaluation of operations planning and control, especially in the context of advanced public transportation systems. Unlike most previous efforts in this area, the simulation model is built on a platform of a mesoscopic traffic simulation model, which allows modeling or the operation dynamics of large-scale transit systems, taking into account the main sources of service uncertainty and stochasticity. The capabilities of Mezzo as an evaluation tool of transit operations are demonstrated with an application to a real-world, high-demand bus line in metropolitan Tel Aviv, Israel, under various scenarios. The application shows that important phenomena such as bus bunching are reproduced realistically. A comparison of simulated running times and headway distributions with field data shows the model is capable of replicating observed data.

    Effect of real-time transit information on dynamic passenger path choice.2011Inngår i: Transportation Research Record, ISSN 0361-1981, Vol. 2217, s. 46-54Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Real-time information is increasingly being implemented in transit networks worldwide. The evaluation of the effect of real-time information requires dynamic modeling of transit operations and of passenger path choices. This paper presents a dynamic transit analysis and evaluation tool that represents time-tables, operation strategies, real-time information, adaptive passenger choices, and traffic dynamics at the network level. Transit path choices are modeled as a sequence of boarding, walking and alighting decisions that passengers undertake when carrying out their journey. The model is applied to the Metro network of Stockholm, Sweden area under various operating conditions and information provision scenarios, as a proof of concept. An analysis of the results indicates substantial path choice shifts and potential time savings associated with more comprehensive real-time information provision and transfer coordination improvements.

    Evaluation of real-time holding strategies for improved bus service reliability2010Inngår i: IEEE Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems, Proceedings, ITSC, Madeira, Portugal, 2010, s. 718-723Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Service reliability is one of the main measures of performance determining transit system level of service. Holding control strategies are a common transit operations practice aimed to reduce transit service unreliability by setting criteria for departure fromtime point stops. In order to adequately analyze the sources of uncertainty involved with transit performance, it is essential to model dynamically the interactions between traffic conditions, passenger demand and transit operations. BusMezzo, a transit simulation model has been developed on a platform of a mesoscopic traffic simulation model, which enables the representation of large-scale transit systems. The model implements severalreal-time holding strategies. It is used to evaluate the application of these strategies in areal-world high-demand bus line in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area, under various scenarios. An analysis of the results suggests that a holding strategy based on the mean headway from the preceding bus and the next bus, restricted by a maximum allowableholding time, is especially efficient.

    Impacts of holding control strategies on transit performance: A bus simulation model analysis2011Inngår i: Transportation Research Record, ISSN 0361-1981, E-ISSN 2169-4052, nr 2216, s. 51-58Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Transit operators are interested in strategies to improve service reliability as it is an important measure of performance and level of service. One of the common practices aimed at reducing service unreliability is holding control strategies. The design of these strategies involves the selection of a set of time point stops and the holding criteria for regulating the departure time. The interactions between passenger activity, transit operations, and traffic dynamics must be dynamically modeled to analyze the impacts of holding strategies on transit performance. An evaluation of different holding criteria and the number and location of time point stops was conducted with Bus Mezzo, a dynamic transit simulation model. The holding strategies were implemented in the model and applied to a high-frequency trunk bus line in Stockholm, Sweden. The analysis of the results considers the implications of holding strategies from both passenger and operator perspectives. The analysis suggests substantial gains are possible by implementing a holding strategy on the basis of the mean headway from the preceding and the succeeding buses. This strategy is the most efficient for passenger time savings as well as fleet costs and crew management.

    Bus-Holding Control Strategies Simulation-Based Evaluation and Guidelines for Implementation2012Inngår i: Transportation Research Record, ISSN 0361-1981, E-ISSN 2169-4052, nr 2274, s. 100-108Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Transit operations involve several inherent sources of uncertainty, including dispatch time from the origin terminal, travel time between stops, and dwell time at stops. Bus-holding control strategies are a prominent method applied by transit operators to improve transit performance and level of service. The common practice is to regulate departures from a limited number of stops by holding buses until their scheduled departure time. An analysis of the performance of a high-frequency bus line in Stockholm, Sweden, based on automatic vehicle location data showed that this control strategy was not effective in improving service regularity along the line. The analysis also indicated that drivers adjusted their speed according to performance objectives. Implications of a control strategy that regulates departures from all stops on the basis of the headways of the preceding bus and the following bus were evaluated with Bus Mezzo, a transit operations simulation model. The results suggest that this strategy can improve service performance considerably from both passengers' and operator's perspectives. In addition, the strategy implies cooperative operations, as the decisions of each driver are interdependent with other drivers' decisions, and mutual corrections can be made. Difficulties in realizing the benefits of the proposed strategy in practice, such as dispatching from the origin terminal, driver scheduling, and compliance, are discussed. The implications of several practical considerations are assessed by conducting a sensitivity analysis as part of the preparations for a field experiment designed to test the proposed control strategy.

    3D Speed Maps and Mean Observations Vectors for Short-Term Urban Traffic Prediction2019Inngår i: TRB Annual Meeting Online, Washington DC, US, 2019, s. 1-20Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    City-wide travel time prediction in real-time is an important enabler for efficient use of the road network. It can be used in traveler information to enable more efficient routing of individual vehicles as well as decision support for traffic management applications such as directed information campaigns or incident management. 3D speed maps have been shown to be a promising methodology for revealing day-to-day regularities of city-level travel times and possibly also for short-term prediction. In this paper, we aim to further evaluate and benchmark the use of 3D speed maps for short-term travel time prediction and to enable scenario-based evaluation of traffic management actions we also evaluate the framework for traffic flow prediction. The 3D speed map methodology is adapted to short-term prediction and benchmarked against historical mean as well as against Probabilistic Principal Component Analysis (PPCA). The benchmarking and analysis are made using one year of travel time and traffic flow data for the city of Stockholm, Sweden. The result of the case study shows very promising results of the 3D speed map methodology for short-term prediction of both travel times and traffic flows. The modified version of the 3D speed map prediction outperforms the historical mean prediction as well as the PPCA method. Further work includes an extended evaluation of the method for different conditions in terms of underlying sensor infrastructure, preprocessing and spatio-temporal aggregation as well as benchmarking against other prediction methods.

    Integrated framework for real-time urban network travel time prediction on sparse probe data2018Inngår i: IET Intelligent Transport Systems, ISSN 1751-956X, E-ISSN 1751-9578, Vol. 12, nr 1, s. 66-74Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The study presents the methodology and system architecture of an integrated urban road network travel time prediction framework based on low-frequency probe vehicle data. Intended applications include real-time network traffic management, vehicle routing and information provision. The framework integrates methods for receiving a stream of probe vehicle data, map matching and path inference, link travel time estimation, calibration of prediction model parameters and network travel time prediction in real time. The system design satisfies three crucial aspects: computational efficiency of prediction, internal consistency between components and robustness against noisy and missing data. Prediction is based on a multivariate hybrid method of probabilistic principal component analysis, which captures global correlation patterns between links and time intervals, and local smoothing, which considers local correlations among neighbouring links. Computational experiments for the road network of Stockholm, Sweden and probe data from taxis show that the system provides high accuracy for both peak and off-peak traffic conditions. The computational efficiency of the framework makes it capable of real-time prediction for large-scale networks. For links with large speed variations between days, prediction significantly outperforms the historical mean. Furthermore, prediction is reliable also for links with high proportions of missing data.

    Spatio-Temporal Partitioning of Large Urban Networks for Travel Time Prediction2018Inngår i: 2018 21ST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (ITSC), IEEE , 2018, s. 1390-1395Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper explores the potential of spatiotemporal network partitioning for travel time prediction accuracy and computational costs in the context of large-scale urban road networks (including motorways/freeways, arterials and urban streets). Forecasting in this context is challenging due to the complexity, heterogeneity, noisy data, unexpected events and the size of the traffic network. The proposed spatio-temporal network partitioning methodology is versatile, and can be applied for any source of travel time data and multivariate travel time prediction method. A case study of Stockholm, Sweden considers a network exceeding 11,000 links and uses taxi probe data as the source of travel times data. To predict the travel times the Probabilistic Principal Component Analysis (PPCA) is used. Results show that the spatio-temporal network partitioning provides a more appropriate bias-variance tradeoff, and that prediction accuracy and computational costs are improved by considering the proper number of clusters towards robust large-scale travel time prediction.

    The Impacts of Heavy-Duty Vehicle Platoon Spacing Policy on Traffic FlowManuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Spacing policy of heavy-duty vehicle (HDV) platoons determines the inter-vehicle distance between HDVs in steady state. It plays an important role in traffic throughput. For example, an HDV platoon with small spacing policies saves space on the highway so that it can accommodate more vehicles. Therefore, the traffic efficiency and highway capacity may be improved by applying small spacing policies on HDV platoons. Conversely, an HDVplatoon with larger spacing policies requires more space on highways and thus has a negative impact on capacity.This paper specifically focuses on two commonly used spacing policies in HDV platooning, constant vehicle spacing (CVS) and constant time gap (CTG) and investigates respective impacts on traffic flow. The speed-density relation of mixed traffic flow is formulated as a function of traffic density, the percentage of HDVs on highway and spacing policy of HDV platoon. In order to investigate the effects of HDV platooning to vehicle interaction, the speed-density relation is derived from car-following model. Numerical results show that HDV platooning with CVSpolicy yields the most significant improvement in highway capacity, compared with no HDV platooning scenario and HDV platooning with CTG policy. However, it has worse performance in heavily congested traffic flows thanCTG policy. A mixed CVS-CTG policy is therefore proposed in this study, in order to combine the benefits fromCVS and CTG policies to traffic flow. This mixed spacing policy could be a promising alternative to the single spacing policy.

    Real-time short-turning in high frequency bus services based on passenger cost2017Inngår i: 5th IEEE International Conference on Models and Technologies for Intelligent Transportation Systems, MT-ITS 2017 - Proceedings, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017, s. 861-866, artikkel-id 8005633Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we deal with the problem of determining when and where a bus should short-turn on a single bi-directional line in real-time. We formulate a decision rule for when to short-turn among candidate short-turning locations that is based on the objective of minimizing total generalized passenger travel cost including waiting times and forced transfer. Computational results and analysis are provided via a simulation study in BusMezzo, a dynamic, agent-based transit operations and assignment model that represents both vehicle as well as passenger progression. The simulation framework allows us to evaluate the resulting trade-off between passenger costs and transit performance that occur when a decision to short-turn is made. The proposed short-turning strategy is applied to a real-world high-frequency transit line in Stockholm, Sweden.

    Simulation of fixed versus on-demand station-based feeder operationsManuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Motivated by lower predicted operational costs, and opportunities for efficient real-time control, automated, centrally coordinated vehicles have in many studies shown great potential as a shared resource within public transit. One particular use case that has grown in popularity over recent years is the application of smaller, automated shuttles as an on-demand feeder to mass transit solution. To investigate differences in fixed versus on-demand operational policies, this paper discusses the operational design and analysis of an automated feeder solution. To this end, a simulation model of demand-responsive transit is developed and incorporated into the transit simulation model BusMezzo. An estimation of operational cost reductions with vehicle automation motivates the case study of two fleets that are deemed comparable with respect to service capacity and operational cost per hour. Results from simulation studies of varying levels of demand indicate that the on-demand policy reduces average total passenger travel times and, for the larger fleet, lowers average vehicle-kilometers traveled per passenger relative fixed service operations. Without achieving a competitive reduction in waiting times, however, on-demand coordination often underperforms with respect to level-of-service and reliability when compared with fixed service operations. When there is slack in fixed service capacity, the performance of the on-demand service outperforms the fixed service with respect to both level-of-service and vehicle utilization only for the lowest demand level tested and the smaller fleet. Average total system costs under on-demand operations improve, however, for the lowest demand levels and the larger fleet due to a reduction in vehicle-kilometers traveled relative a fixed service. When fixed service capacity is exceeded it is found that on-demand coordination outperforms fixed operations with respect to average level-of-service, vehicle-kilometers traveled, and total system costs. Furthermore, when planned service capacity is exceeded, it is found that total passenger waiting time is more equally distributed under on-demand operations relative to fixed.

    Evaluation of Real-Time Travel Time Estimation Methods and Disruption Warning Using Noisy Automatic Vehicle Identification Measurements2009Inngår i: Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting 2009 Paper: Transportation Research Board 88th Annual Meeting, Washington D.C., Jan. 2009, 2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To support the implementation of a real-time traffic information system in Stockholm using automatic vehicle identification (AVI) data, a travel time analysis platform has been developed. The platform is composed of a client-side travel time data analysis program and a database server where historical travel time data are stored. In the study, several existing freeway travel time estimation algorithms and their modifications were implemented in the travel time analysis program, and evaluated using four months data collected on urban streets and arterials in and near the city of Stockholm. The advantages and disadvantages of those algorithms are analyzed using the highly noisy travel time measurements. The results show that with modifications in the parameter settings and the algorithms themselves, the methods are capable of estimating the travel times from the noise-corrupted urban data. In addition to the travel time estimation, the paper presents a simple data disruption recognition approach on the way toward a more comprehensive disruption and incident warning system.

    Mesoscopic simulation for transit operations2010Inngår i: Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies, ISSN 0968-090X, E-ISSN 1879-2359, Vol. 18, nr 6, s. 896-908Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a transit simulation model designed to support evaluation of operations, planning and control, especially in the context of Advanced Public Transportation Systems (APTS). Examples of potential applications include frequency determination, evaluation of real-time control strategies for schedule maintenance and assessing the effects of vehicle scheduling on the level of service. Unlike most previous efforts in this area, the simulation model is built on a platform of a mesoscopic traffic simulation model, which allows modeling of the operation dynamics of large-scale transit systems taking into account the stochasticity due to interactions with road traffic. The capabilities of Mezzo as an evaluation tool of transit operations are demonstrated with an application to a real-world high-demand bus line in the Tel-Aviv metropolitan area under various scenarios. The headway distributions at two stops are compared with field observations and show good consistency between simulated and observed data.
