New Traffic Congestion Analysis Method in Developing Countries (India)

Tsutomu Tsuboi

Abstract

This manuscript describes introducing new traffic congestion analysis for developing country in India. In generally, it is challenge to show how traffic congestion occurs, especially in developing countries such as in India because its traffic is consisted of various kinds of transportation like two wheelers, three wheelers, and sometimes animals on the roads. There is a chance to collect real traffic flow data in Ahmedabad of Gujarat states of India since October 2014. The traffic monitoring system there consist of 14 traffic monitoring cameras and the system is capable to monitor traffic density, traffic volume, average vehicle speed, and occupancy at the each location. In this manuscript, there are three types of traffic congestion analysis. One is based on its observation traffic flow, in which it compares daily traffic volume and its average vehicle speed. The second one is based on the judgement of occupancy parameter, which uses as one of traffic congestion parameter in general. The third one is based on estimation from “social loss” calculation which comes from the traffic flow theory but is challenge to analyse in the developing countries. The social loss calculation is proven in the traffic theory but it is difficult to define the traffic demand curve, the social cost curve, and the traffic supply curve. Author shows how to make the practical “social loss” calculation and its validation compared with the actual traffic congestion condition.
