REAL-TIME DISPATCHING CONTROL FOR COORDINATED OPERATION IN TRANSIT TERMINALS

For real-time dispatching control in transit terminals, the holding time for each ready vehicle is optimized on the basis of predicted arrival delays of late vehicles and other factors such as expected transfer volumes and vehicle operating costs. Holding times for each ready vehicle are optimized with the proposed numerical approach, which evaluates the dispatching decision at frequent intervals for ready vehicles by evaluating a dispatching objective function. That function is computed by numerically integrating relevant probability distributions. The numerical results can provide general dispatching guidelines. However, the dispatching algorithms are efficient enough to be used in real time for each decision.
