On-line Distributed Prediction of Traffic Flow in a Large-Scale Traffic Network

For online traffic control at traffic control centers there is a need for predictions of traffic flow over a short horizon to evaluate the impact of different scenario for the purpose of on-line scenarios selection. Fast computation is needed for the online decision support system. However, the common approach of a parallel simulation has several drawbacks. In this paper, a novel approach by state matching is presented to predict the traffic flow in a large-scale traffic network in a parallel and distributed way with a reasonably small computation time.
