Course – Traffic Flow Operations and AI

October 15, 2021

Novel perspectives on networks traffic flow theory for transportation networks

Empirics of network traffic flow theory:

  • Data collection for network traffic flows
  • Empirical relations in network traffic data (e.g. fundamental diagram (for networks))
  • Active modes traffic empirics

Short recap of Fundamentals of traffic flow theory:

  • Inductive vs deductive science
  • Microscopic models, macroscopic models, and their relations (multi-scaling)
  • A multi-modal perspective to traffic flow theory

Applications of AI in network traffic flow operations

  • AI and traffic flow theory: two peas in the same pot?
  • Structures in data, identification of dynamic relations
  • Examples of AI and model-based data assimilation (estimation, prediction, control)

More detailed information on the course will follow soon.
