An Integrated Approach to Modeling Vehicular Movement Networks

This article will discuss how conventional traffic models are cost intensive and that they are rarely constructed to represent the finest scale structure of the highway network. However, the axial model of space syntax, an alternative approach to trip-assignment, is considerably less cost intensive but its predictions become less deterministic while dealing with the route-choice problems typically encountered in grid-like urban structures. This article develops an overview that shows how these two approaches complement each other and then integrates them into a robust trip-assignment tool that is expected to guide planners in justifying decisions with database evidence while designing transportation policies for urban infrastructure developments.
