Fundamental Principles of Traffic Flow

Transportation System Analysis

• Given the transportation demand, what is the performance of the transportation network?

Trajectory

Time-Space Diagram

• Location vs. Time • Offers a lot of useful information about

movement of the vehicles • Trajectory

– Curves that define a single position for every movement of time, x(t)

Time-Space Diagram

• From basic Physics – Vertical length = distance traveled – Horizontal length = time consumed – First derivative (Slope) = velocity = dx/dt – Second derivative = acceleration = d2x/dt2

Time-Space Diagram

• Possible vehicle trajectories?

Example

• Stations of a transit vehicle (bus or subway)

• If the distance between stations is not long enough the vehicle can’t reach its cruising speed

Delay for introducing middle station

Example

• Assume the acceleration and deceleration rates are constant • Total delay from the stop: v/2a+stopping time +v/2a

Cruising speed

v/2a v/2a

v/2a v/2a

v/a

v/a v²/a

Constructing Trajectories

• How to time-space diagram – Vehicle kinematics (solving ordinary

differential equations) – Empirical way

• Aerial surveys • Stationary observers (Traffic detectors) • Driver logs

Aerial Surveys • Take consecutive photographs to

the same road segment • Place them next to each other,

separated by the time interval between shots

• Draw lines across the different pictures

• following the location of the individual vehicles (these are the trajectories)

x

Stationary Observers

• Measure the time at which every vehicle passes the observers • Place them next to each other, separated by the distance

intervals • Draw lines following the time of the individual vehicles (these

are the trajectories) Link

Driver Logs

• Drivers record the time and location along their trip • Plot the corresponding points • Draw lines following the points corresponding to the individual

vehicles (these are the trajectories)

Fundamental Diagram

• Flow-Density relationship – If density is 0, flow is 0 (No vehicle) – At a certain density, flow is 0 (Traffic Jam)

• Maximum jam density (kj) – As density increases from 0, flow increases

initially. – After the max flow point (qmax), flow

decreases as density increases.

Fundamental Diagram

• Example – k0=0 veh/km, q0=0 veh/h – k1=1, v1=vmax=vf , q1=vf x 1=vf – k2=10 (spacing = 100m), v2<vf ,

q2=v2 x 10>vf – k3=50 (spacing= 20m) →slow

v3« vf , q3=k3v3 →decreasing – k4=125 (spacing= 8m)= kj →jam

v4= 0, q4=0
