Real Time Estimation of Arterial Travel Time and Operational Measures through Integration of Real Time Fixed Sensor Data and Simulation

The specific objectives of this research are to determine the feasibility of integrating real-time data and simulation and to conduct a field test of the proposed methodology on a target corridor. Additionally, as part of the real-time simulation calibration and prediction effort the benefit of real time probe vehicle data will be explored (e.g. GPS instrumented vehicles, cellular probe data, etc.). The ability to include probe vehicle data in the field test will be subject to probe vehicle data availability.

  • Supplemental Notes:
    • The stated objectives will be accomplished through the following tasks: 1) review of real time simulation literature, 2) development of a federated simulation test bed, 3) federation of real time detector data streams with a simulation, 4) development of real time data driven simulation algorithms, 5) Investigation of potential of non-typical detector placements, 6) field test implementation, and 7) the development of a method for real time presentation of arterial performance.
