題目: Real -time control for transit systems with transfers



Abstract: We report on research to develop a real-time simulation-based control framework that attempts to coordinate the eperations of multiple transit lines simultaneously to allow smoother transfers and to maintain service regularity. The control actions, which include holding and change speed, are set as the solution of an optimization problem with the objective to minimize total passengers’ time in the system within a prediction horizon. The prediction horizon is defined by a number of downstream stops and subsequent buses. The predictions made include the arrival and departure times of vehicles at downstream stops and the passenger demands they are expected to serve. The model is demonstrated with a simulation-based case study of three lines of the BRT system in Haifa, Israel. The results show the system’s potential to reduce the total passengers’ time.
