Algorithm for Link Travel Time Estimation on Highways

For the drivers and road operators the travel time information represents the most useful information when planning a trip. Travel time of a single vehicle could be recorded directly by measuring the time interval a vehicle needs to traverse the segment and to determine the representative value of the travel time the outliers have to be eliminated. The outliers in travel time measurements are vehicles whose shortened or extended travel times are not caused by the traffic conditions, but are the result of individual behavior of such vehicle. As the adequate information on travel times is the one of personal cars, the influence of heavy vehicles should be eliminated from the samples. The proposed algorithm determines the appropriate estimator that best describes the drivers of personal cars driving by the posted speed limit. Evaluation proved the algorithm to perform effectively in different traffic flow situations.
