EVALUATION OF IVHS OPTIONS USING CONTRAM AND INTEGRATION

This paper compares both CONTRAM and INTEGRATION models' traffic flow and traffic assignment fundamentals, in the absence of IVHS technologies, in order to establish a reference point from which any differences in IVHS features can be discussed. The results indicate that the two dynamic models provide very similar results for the same scenarios, but that subtle differences in their traffic flow and traffic assignment models can readily be discerned. It is recommended that other models, for evaluating the benefits of IVHS deployments, be examined and compared in a similar fashion before their results or features for larger networks are considered in detail.
