THE DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF AN ASSIGNMENT MODEL FOR DYNAMIC ROUTE GUIDANCE

This research examines the development and application of an assignment model for evaluating the impact of beacon-based dynamic route guidance systems. Focus is on the representative modelling of route guidance system operations and driver behavior and response. The primary issues that are modelled and investigated include the effects of : DRG subscription level, beacon density, extent of the DRG network, route updating frequency, journey time forecasting procedures, information sources on current traffic conditions, and their significance, congestion level, demand and capability variability, and traffic incidents. The model is based on the CONTRAM dynamic traffic assignment model, and is applied to a sub-network of London.
