Microscopic Online Simulation for Real-Time Traffic Management

This thesis presents a strategy for microscopic online simulation (MiOS) for real-time traffic management. The chapters cover data gathering, storing, handling, and communication through the system; an assessment of available online simulation models; the methodology of MiOS, including the five modules of simulator, route choice, origin-destination (OD) estimation, traffic control, and driving behavior; the implementation of MiOS; and the use of the Framework for Online Traffic Management (FrOnT) simulator with real world data from the Regiolab Delft. The author concludes that the FrOnT system, in connection with the autonomous modules for simulation of MiOS is able to support traffic engineers in their task of network operations. The system can serve as a test environment for newly-developed algorithms under real life conditions. This system also has the potential to decrease the time span between development and implementation of methods and supports the standardization of communication protocols among traffic engineering applications. Three appendices cover desired speeds from remote sensing data; transfer protocols in FrOnT; and data description files in FrOnT.
