Bottleneck calibration in micro-simulation for corridor management usingdata from single loop detectors

Corridor mobility improvements require new approaches to corridor management planning and operations, for which micro-simulation is usually appliedto assess corridor performance and evaluate traffic improvement strategies. Bottleneck calibration in micro-simulation plays an important role in developing these corridor-level micro-simulation models. This paper extendsa recently developed method for conducting corridor-level bottleneck calibration by using data from single loop detectors. It is shown that, instead of using speeds which are usually obtained from double loop detectors, similar calibration results can be achieved by using occupancy data that isavailable from single loop detectors. The results thus extend the practicality of the previous method so that it can be applied to all areas with loop detectors (single or double) deployed. For the covering abstract see ITRD E140665.
