Abstract

DynaMIT is a simulation-based real-time system designed to estimate the current state of a transportation network, predict future traffic conditions, and provide consistent and unbiased information to travelers. To perform these tasks, efficient simulators have been designed to explicitly capture the interactions between transportation demand and supply. The demand reflects both the OD flow patterns and the combination of all the individual decisions of travelers while the supply reflects the transportation network in terms of infrastructure, traffic flow and traffic control. This paper describes the design and specification of these simulators, and discusses their interactions.
