Abstract

The project focuses on building a dynamic transport simulation model able to take account of behaviour arising from information received or perceived, including the effects of the scale and level of penetration of RTI systems installed. The model, adaptable to arbitrary urban networks, focuses on non-equilibrium dynamic assignment and provides three typical strategies - safety, environment and performance - important for DRIVE objectives. IMAURO is conceived as an integrated tool with a modular structure: Data Acquisition, Database and Simulation Model. The latter is characterised as the integration of three sub-models each acting at a specific level, and can show the effects of broadcast information on travel times, traffic density and flow rates.
