Abstract

In this work, maximum entropy model is used for the traffic assignment in Bangalore city for the busiest roads; where multi size vehicles like busses, cars, auto rickshaws and motor bikes use the road. The actual data is collected and the traffic flow is predicted for two different routes which connect two points. The data predicted using the maximum entropy model is compared with the user equilibrium method and found to have reasonable accuracy. The maximum entropy model is defined along with the constraints and mathematical model is solved using MATLAB.
