SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND USER RESPONSE UNDER REAL-TIME INFORMATION IN A CONGESTED TRAFFIC CORRIDOR

A modelling framework is developed to analyze the effect of in-vehicle real time information strategies on the performance of a congested traffic commuting corridor. The framework consists of a special-purpose simulation component and a user decisions component that determines users' responses to the supplied information. The framework allows the investigation of system performance under alternative behavioral response mechanisms, as well as under different information strategies. Results are presented for simulation experiments in a commuting corridor with a special network structure that simplifies the network computations. The results illustrate the effect of the fraction of users equipped with in-vehicle navigation systems on overall system performance.
