DYNAMIC TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT: HISTORY, RECENT RESULTS AND UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

This talk begins by discussing the intellectual history of dynamic traffic assignment (DTA). We then review the DTA modeling paradigms available today. We also hypothesize how travel behavior over vehicular networks may change due to innovations in information technology. This leads us to conjectures about the form of new DTA models and associated computational methods.
