DynaChina: a real-time traffic prediction system specially-built for China

The need for a traffic prediction system is strong and the ability to predict traffic is desirable. Several such systems, including DynaMIT and DYNASMART, have been developed. However, these systems cannot be deployed in China because of China's unique local traffic characteristics. Xi'an Jiaotong University initiated a traffic prediction system project in 2001 and DynaCHINA (Dynamic Consistent Hybrid Information based on Network Assignment) was developed in 2006. DynaCHINA can predict a traffic bottleneck and then direct traffic to other routes to mitigate congestion and prevent potential congestion situations from developing into serious traffic jams. DynaCHINA has four unique features. Laboratory evaluation had shown its potential and initial field deployments are being conducted in Beijing, Jinan and Guangzhou.
