IMPROVING DYNAMIC TRAVEL TIME ESTIMATES FOR MELBOURNE'S DRIVE TIME SYSTEM

In this paper, the authors present a new algorithm for predicting freeway travel times for the Vic Roads Drive Time system in operation in Melbourne, Australia. The new algorithm is able to be used in any traffic situation between any two points. In addition, it can account for the relative speeds and densities of vehicles within the traffic stream. The goal is that this new algorithm will lead to improvements in travel time prediction.
