Data-Driven Traffic Engineering: Understanding of Traffic and Applications Based on Three-Phase Traffic Theory
Are you an engineer or scientist who deals with congestion modeling and measurement problems? Then this publication is for you! “Data-Driven Traffic Engineering: Understanding of Traffic and Applications Based on Three-Phase Traffic Theory”, by Rehborn Hubert (from TISA Member Daimler), Koller and Kaufmann, shifts the current focus from using modeling and simulation data for traffic measurements to the use of actual data. The book uses real-world, empirically-derived data from a large fleet of connected vehicles, local observations and aerial observation to shed light on key traffic phenomena.
Readers will learn how to develop an understanding of the empirical features of vehicular traffic networks and how to consider these features in emerging, intelligent transport systems. Topics cover congestion patterns, fuel consumption, the influence of weather, and much more. This book offers a unique, data-driven analysis of vehicular traffic in traffic networks, also considering how to apply data-driven insights to the intelligent transport systems of the future.
