Abstract: Planning, design and implementation of traffic infrastructure is a complex task especially when it is done for infrastructure located in urban areas because it depends on different factors and interests. This is why the solutions have to be evaluated by different type of criteria (traffic, economic, environmental and social). For this purpose during last decades multi-criteria methods came into use and numerous methods have been developed which are classified as multi-criteria analysis methods (e.g. PROMETHEE, TOPSIS, and AHP). In this paper the overview of how the multi-criteria analysis method AHP - Analytic Hierarchy Process is used as decision making tool in the process of transportation planning. AHP has been*…show more content…*

. “Optimal” refers to shortest time, shortest distance, or least total cost.

The travel time study is conducted in Indore city, India using test car technique and MPT from each origin zone to all destination zone were obtained incorporating travel time and distance as factor separately. H.Ramzani, Y. Shafahi and S.E. Seyedabrishami proposed a method to solve shortest path problems in route choice process when each link travel time is fuzzy no. called as perceived travel time (PTT) which is subjective travel time perceived by a driver. They used FSPA (fuzzy shortest path algorithm) to find shortest path in an urban transportation network. Apeksha Khare proposed Adaptive Dynamic Route Planning (ADRP) algorithm in which vehicle continues to move on the shortest path or can opt for a minimum time taking route based on the requirement during travel from its source to destination. Lilli Qu and Yan chen (2008) set up Hybrid Multicriteria Decision Making (MCDM) on the basis of fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and artificial neural network (ANN) theory for route selection of multimodal transportation network.

## Distribution Planning In Multimodal Transportation

1634 Words | 7 PagesThe problem of allocation location has been remarkably distinguished throughout the field of network design. Location-allocation refers to algorithms used primarily in a geographic information system to determine an optimal location for one or more facilities that will service demand from a given set of points. Algorithms can assign those demand points to one or more facilities, taking into account factors such as the number of facilities available, their cost, and the maximum impedance from a facility to a point. There are also several approaches as long as methodologies which were developed to clarify this problem. Through courses that we attended in Industrial and Systems Engineering department such as ‘Logistics Engineering and Supply Chain

A large body of literature indicated that cost and time overruns are significant problems faced by road construction projects. The risk factors that have impact on project objectives of road construction projects are identified. Causal loop diagrams in the model were used to describe the conceptual model structure derived from a modeler’s understanding of system and show the dynamic of variables involved in the system. Model boundaries were determined to provide the boundary and architecture of the model causal loop diagrams.

1129 Words | 5 PagesFor example: l (input unit)-5(hidden neurons)-1(output unit) and 2(input units)-10(hidden neurons) - 1(output unit). The research has accounted only vehicle trips and the trip data were taken from the freeway tollgates in three major cities of Korea - Seoul, Chonan and Pusan. 5 year data (1991 -1995) were used for both regression and neural network model, and 1 year data (1996) has been used for testing the prediction accuracy of each model. For the input units of the neural networks, the same variables as regression models have been used in order to compare two different models directly. For the sake of efficiency, all the input and output data were scaled into values that ranged between 0.1 and 0.9, and the networks were initialized to random values between +0.5 and -0.5 before learning.

## Traffic Monitoring Research

2151 Words | 9 PagesThis PCU factor is the ratio of the projected rectangular area of the vehicle type, as a proportion of that of a car, to the velocity of the vehicle type, as a proportion of car velocity. The velocities for different vehicle types are found by solving a set of linear simultaneous equations, whose coefficients depend on: (1) traffic stream composition; (2) the road's total mixed traffic flow per unit time; (3) total carriageway width; and (4) parameters to be estimated by linear regression analysis. Variations of dynamic PCUs are plotted, in relation to traffic composition, for a section of the Delhi Ring Road, for the following vehicle classes: (1) car/jeep/taxi; (2) bus/minibus/truck; (3) motorized three-wheeler; (4) motorized two-wheeler; and (5) bicycle.

## The Importance Of Traffic Abortion

1273 Words | 6 PagesTransportation has been a vital side of human civilization at all the times, however it is just in the last half of the recent century that the phenomenon of traffic congestion has become more important because of the fast increase in the number of vehicles and in the transportation demand in almost all transportation modes. Traffic congestion leads to extra delays, reduced safety, and enhanced environmental pollution. Right now, traffic congestion is a critical social problem, and traditional road construction is restricted by the land and capital. So that, to solve the traffic related issues, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are widely used all over the world. Many subsystems of ITS such as Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) and Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) can benefit from prediction of traffic parameters (such as traffic volume, average traffic speed, and average occupancy) in a short-term future.

Foxed timing uses the same present time intervals while actuated timing uses a detector to be able to adjust traffic volumes within the differences. Last but not least as for the coordinated timing, it helps to reduce the beginning and it will stop randomly at which traffic that helps of the traffic flow and less likely, is to create a traffic
