Use of Simulation-Based Forecast for Real Time Traffic Management Decision Support: The Madrid Case

In the transportation vocabulary, “anticipating” is gradually replacing ”reacting”. Indeed, being able to forecast the evolution of the traffic in a network is a basis on which many traffic management strategies and multiple Iintelligent transportation systems (ITS) applications should ideally rely. Real time prediction capabilities are therefore becoming a concrete need for the management of networks, both for urban and interurban environments, and today’s road operator expectations drive increasingly complex and exacting requirements.
