In Toronto, Canada, simulation models show that traffic-sensitive dynamic route guidance systems can increase throughput.
The DRG application enabled familiar/informed drivers to receive real-time traffic information and choose routes with the least travel time. The SRG application provided familiar/informed drivers with turning decision information every five minutes and enabled them to choose routes with minimal accident risk.
Dynamic Route Guidance
- DRG-equipped vehicles increased network throughput.
- The SRG application increased network throughput.
