ESTIMATION OF MULTICLASS ORIGIN-DESTINATION MATRICES FROM TRAFFIC COUNTS

This paper presents a procedure for the estimation of multiclass origin-destination (O-D) matrices for a highway network. The system consists of a number of vehicle classes. Demand is assigned to the network in a user equilibrium manner. An entropy maximization procedure is proposed to simultaneously estimate the O-D demand matrices of all vehicle classes, which are consistent with the multiclass traffic counts that are observed directly in the network. A case study of the Hong Kong highway network demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed methodology for a real large scale network.
