Analysis of traffic flow in urban road networks

Mentor: Dr Tim Garoni and Dr Jan de Gier, MASCOS – The University of Melbourne
Intern: Omar Rojas
Industry Partner: VicRoads (Andrew Wall, VicRoads Network Operations)
Project Duration: December 2008 to February 2009

This project seeks to determine the critical measures of road network performance and quantify any under performance of the existing network using Celluar automata models. It is hoped the models will assist to characterise generic network features and assist to quantify gains from dynamic updating of traffic controls.
