Traffic modelling data


To create a traffic model, there is necessary to have:

  • Transport network – encoded transport network – streets and intersections with data on speed of traffic flow and delays at intersections, eventually model of public transport lines.
  • Origin-destination matrix or matrices  for different vehicle types and/or time periods.

If OD matrix is not available and/or is not calibrated with traffic census data, it is possible to calculate the OD matrix with following:

  • Traffic generators – data on individual traffic districts such as population, number of jobs and other characteristics. Spatial characteristics – connection of the zone to the transport network.
  • Data for the calibration of the model of the current state – actually measured traffic intensity on some sections of the transport network.
