Abstract

The aim of our research was to elaborate the framework and solution process of the optimization of the linear traffic distribution problem based on the road toll structure, assuming an intelligent and autonomous transportation system. In this article, framework of the problem has been defined based on a linear programming approach, applying pre-defined demand structure and network characteristics. Traffic volume values of the network have been estimated and distributed as a function of the road toll structure, considering the costs of the routes as variables. Applicability of the model has been proved on a simplified example. Based on the results of the research, optimal static solution of the traffic distribution problem can be determined in a given sample time period by modifying the road toll system, based on pre-defined conditions.
