Stochastic Network Vehicular Origin-Destination Demand Using Multi-Sensor Information Fusion Approaches

The Introduction section of this report describes the problem of solving the heterogeneous sensors deployment problem (HSDP) and network O-D matrix estimation problem which is referred to as the HSDP-OD problem in this study. It addresses the HSDP-OD problem in an integrated manner using a two-stage optimization model where the error on the O-D matrix estimate in the second-stage model is fed back to modify the sensor deployment strategy in the first-stage model until some pre-specified error thresholds are met. The Methodology section characterizes the heterogeneous sensor based traffic information and presents the integrated model for the HSDP-OD problem, including the formulations of the heterogeneous sensors deployment and O-D matrix estimation models. It describes the solution procedure with the feedback mechanism to solve the integrated model. The Findings section discusses the results of numerical experiments based on real road network. Finally, concluding remarks are presented in the Summary and Recommendations section.
