What is it about?

Methodology of generating two dynamic information components of graphical route information panels, level-of-service map and travel time, is proposed through a Chinese case study.

Why is it important?

Three segmentation approaches for level-of-service map generation (the detector-based approach, the ramp-based approach, and the hybrid approach), were proposed. A macroscopic traffic flow model based travel time prediction approach for GRIP was proposed. The traffic flow model incorporated in the prediction approach is a validated high-order continuum model.
