Mohammad Amin Abedini presents 'A Machine-Learning Framework for Clustering and Calibration of Roadway Performance Models with Application in Large-Scale Traffic Assignment'
Please join us for the in-person seminar by Mohammad Amin Abedini on Friday September 16th from 11 AM to 12 PM at the ITS lab. Free coffee will be offered!
The roadway performance model is one component of travel demand model systems, whose primary purpose is to replicate the congestion effect in traffic assignment. One of the main challenges of developing these performance models is the availability of data, which historically was largely lacking. Thanks to emerging data sources, this study proposes a multi-stage machine-learning-based framework to clean, classify and calibrate roadway performance models of various roadway functional classes in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). Recurrent spatial and temporal trends of roadway performance are further investigated, and distinctive patterns are observed for road segments with specific physical attributes.
