Model and Algorithm for Link-Based Stochastic User Equilibrium Traffic Assignment

The stochastic user equilibrium (SUE) traffic assignment model integrates the concepts of random assignment and Wardrop equilibrium, and it makes the assignment results more reasonable. The conventional Logit-based SUE model is explicitly built upon path flow variables, which encumbers its large-scale applications and further theoretical analyses. In this paper, a link-based SUE traffic assignment model with link capacity constraints is developed by using the network equilibrium modeling approach. The solution equivalence and uniqueness of the proposed model are rigorously proved. An efficient solution algorithm is also proposed to obtain the equilibrium solution. Numerical results indicate that the proposed link-based SUE model can reflect the real route choice behavior of travelers more reasonable and also facilitate the algorithmic development and further theoretical analyses.
