Reducing traffic congestion level of Dhaka city using policy based algorithm in SUMO
MetadataShow full item record
In recent times, traffic congestion has grabbed attention of many researchers to come up with a solution and minimize enormous economic loss which incurs because of it. In this paper, we evaluate impact of road incidents and provide extensive analysis of vehicular travel time and traffic congestion level. After that, we propose a re-routing policy for Gulshan-Banani junction of Dhaka through the open source traffic simulator SUMO (Simulation of Urban Mobility) to bypass blocked road due to any incident. The proposed re-routing policy has been implemented and obtained results have proven its efficiency on reducing vehicular travel time and waiting time in case of incident compared to general SUMO.
