TRICEPS-CARTESIUS : Advanced transportation management system test bed for evaluation of interjurisdictional traffic management strategies Logi, Filippo et al

By: Logi, FilippoPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2001Description: nr 1748, s. 125-31Subject(s): USA | | | Traffic control | Mathematical model | Intelligent transport system | Real time | Area traffic control | 23 | 25Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1748Location: Abstract: The initial testing and evaluation of one of the key components of the Testbed Real-Time Integrated Control and Evaluation Prototype System (TRICEPS) are described. TRICEPS is a software platform that facilitates the implementation and evaluation of a wide range of algorithms for traffic control and advanced transportation management systems. TRICEPS supports research activities by providing consistent interfaces for transportation management modules to both simulated and real-world environments. One of the key components of the TRICEPS platform is a distributed architecture for real-time decision support to transportation management center operators that provides a set of core transportation management applications for multijurisdictional traffic control and incident management on freeway and arterial networks. The architecture hosts algorithms for the estimation of current traffic conditions, the analysis of incident characteristics, and the formulation of multiple-decision-maker traffic control plans using advanced methodologies for cooperation and conflict resolution. Although the process of evaluation of such methodologies using the TRICEPS platform is aimed at demonstrating the effectiveness of the cooperative approach, it also provides a demonstration of platform functionality for range of related applications.
