Traffic information system
MetadataShow full item record
Traffic Information System will assist travelers with planning, perception, analysis and decision making to improve the convenience, safety and efficiency of travel . It will provide the traveler three facilities: route planning, alerting for traffic jams and alternative routes.. The goal of route planning is to locate a connected sequence of road segments from a current location to a destination. Route computation may be based on criteria such as the shortest travel distance or travel time. Route computation is also useful for travel during rush hour, travel in unfamiliar areas, and/or travel to an unfamiliar destination. The goal of route evaluation is to find the attributes of a given route between two points. These attributes may include travel time and traffic congestion information, and thus route evaluation is also useful for selecting travel time by a familiar path. The goal of route display is to effectively communicate the optimal route to the traveler for navigation. In this project, the focus is put on algorithms for real-time route computation on maps stored in a database and to compute the data to be delivered to the traveler.
