题目：Dynamical AV routing allocation scheme with mixed traffic flow in the tolled network
摘要：This study proposes a dynamical routing scheme of autonomous vehicles (AVs) in a mixed traffic condition consisting of conventional vehicles (CVs), uncontrolled AVs and controlled AVs in a tolled network. We adopt the general BRUE assumption for route choice of CVs and UE assumptions for route choice of uncontrolled AVs. The evolution of traffic flow is modelled in a day-to-day (DTD) framework. The proposed model is built in a general framework. Although travelers follow different routing principle, under general assumptions, the proposed scheme can drive the aggregated flow toward the desired flow pattern, which is the unique UE flow pattern with the implementation of a uniform toll pricing on uncontrolled travelers. In addition, the exemption of toll for the controlled AV users is the motivation for them to accept the route allocation with some routes that are inferior in respect to travel time cost during the flow adjustment process. A rigorous stability analysis is presented and other properties of models are also discussed, such as the invariance of traffic flow trajectories and the equivalence of the stationary states and equilibrium condition for different group of flow and aggregated flow and rigorous mathematical proofs are given. For the purpose of practical application, a specific model satisfying the general formulation is proposed and tested in two numerical examples. The study provides some insights on how to utilize the controllable property of AVs and consider a method for AVs to accept more time-consuming routes. Moreover, the general framework of the proposed model is more flexible for the real application.
