Title:Dynamic traffic networks and user equilibrium in continuous time
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Ke Han, Penn State
Abstract:
Dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) is usually viewed as the positive modeling of time varying flows on vehicular networks consistent with established traffic flow. This talk is concerned with a specific type of DTA known as continuous time dynamic user equilibrium (DUE) for which unit travel cost, including early and late arrival penalties, is identical for those route and departure time choices selected by travel agencies. We also propose a network loading procedure based on the LWR hydrodynamic model and Lax-Hopf formula. The DVI algorithm then requires repeatedly solving a dynamic network loading problem. These are applied to some network examples and their solutions presented graphically.
