Estimating ATIS Benefits For The Smart Corridor


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    This report studies the effects of Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) on traffic congestion in the Smart Corridor of the Santa Monica Freeway. Simulation modeling is used to estimate the potential travel time savings to divert traffic from the Smart Corridor to arterial roads when incidents occur. The study attempts to establish relationships between traffic management variables, such as incident detection time, incident duration, capacity reduction, percentage of traffic diversion, and duration of traffic diversion.
