AN EVALUATION OF EFFECTS OF DYNAMIC ROUTE GUIDANCE ON AN URBAN EXPRESSWAY NETWORK

This study evaluates impacts of dynamic route guidance by applying a traffic simulation model, called SOUND, to the Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway network. The focus is placed on how the information quality and a share of equipped vehicles of navigation systems influence on traffic condition. Proposing several scenarios with different compositions of driver types and with/without an accident, investigators examine the impacts qualitatively. In most cases of this study, the predicted information improves traffic condition more than the present one, especially in a case where an accident unexpectedly occurred.
