This project will further adapt and enhance the previous research of relevance to event-based Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) and implement the algorithms for traffic management in Anaheim. The implementation involves the Caltrans-UCI ATMS research testbed framework at the UCI Institute of Transportation Studies, as well as the physical hardware available for communication to the city of Anaheim. The analytical algorithms proposed for use here include those for static and dynamic traffic assignment. and the modeling schemes used are the result of previous PATH and Testbed research projects on traffic simulation and driver behavioral response to information. The essential part of algorithmic research will be to adapt the network optimization algorithms to generate traffic rerouting plans, which involve aggregation of network paths and their translation to a format usable for changeable message signs existing in Anaheim. as well as other event-based information supply hardware. The implementation plan envisages a framework that is usable by the city for event-based congestion management, but its useis left to the city's decision.
