SIMPLIFICATION OF TRAFFIC MODELS

Traffic models are often used to determine the future car traffic on city streets, and to use them in the forecasting procedure it is necessary to prepare a matrix for the traffic between all zones in the city. This matrix is usually built up on the results from a home interview of a sample of inhabitants, and such a survey can be the most expensive part of the work. Some authors have recently suggested that the matrix be determined from traffic counts. Abstracts of three such models are given, and their accuracy is compared; comparison is also made with the accuracy of a model based on home interviews. /Author/TRRL/
