Abstract

The effect of real-time information on the performance of a traffic commuting corridor in situations of non-recurrent congestion is studied using a dynamic simulation model. Non-recurrent congestion refers to situations resulting from a temporary reduction in the capacity of a section of a highway due to accidents, repairwork or construction. Simulation experiments are performed using four experimental factors- location of the incident, duration of the incident market penetration(fraction of users with access to real-time information), and user behavioral rules- to study the overall system performance. The results illustrate the interactions between the various experimental factors and provide insights into possible control and diversion strategies.
