SHORT-TERM FORECASTING MODEL FOR TRAFFIC FLOW ON A MOTORWAY

MODELE DE PREVISION A COURS TERME DE L'ECOULEMENT DU TRAFIC SUR AUTOROUTE

THIS REPORT STUDIES TRAFFIC LAWS AND DESCRIBES A MACROSCOPIC DETERMINISTIC MODEL SIMULATING MOTORWAY TRAFFIC. EXPERIMENTAL DATA COLLECTED ON THE AUTOROUTE DE L'OUEST (WESTERN MOTORWAY) WERE USED FOR THE STUDY. FLOW/OCCUPANCY RATE CURVES WERE PLOTTED AND USED TO TEST A FORECASTING MODEL BASED ON THE WAVE THEORY. A GOOD APPROXIMATION WAS OBTAINED IN THE PREDICTION OF TRAFFIC CONGESTION. AN EXAMPLE IS GIVEN.
