Traffic Flow Assignment Model with Modified Impedance Function

In this paper, the authors study a mixed-mode traffic network, in which Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Gasoline Vehicles (GVs) can be driven freely. They propose a new piecewise impedance function and, based on this new impedance function, they present a convex but nonsmooth optimization model for the traffic network. In order to deal with the nonsmoothness, the authors introduce a binary variable. Furthermore, they report some numerical examples to show the efficiency of the model s effective and robust. In particular, their numerical results illustrate that, if the distance limit of BEVs is long enough and the unit operating cost of BEVs is lower than GVs, more travelers prefer to choosing BEVs.
