Abstract
Accurate and reliable short-term traffic flow forecasting is essential for advanced traveler information systems and proactive traffic signal control systems. However, the majority of current studies mainly concentrate on short-term traffic flow level forecasting. To improve the forecasting reliability of traffic flow parameters, short-term traffic flow uncertainty forecasting has been emphasized and studied gradually, and many models had been developed. Among these models, generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (GARCH) and stochastic volatility (SV) model is considered to have high accuracy and reliability. Based on traffic flow data collected from urban roads, forecasting methods of forecasting performance of short-term traffic flow uncertainty are studied and compared under different roads and traffic conditions in this paper. The results show that the performance of the ARIMA-GARCH, VAR-MGARCH, and ARIMA-SV models for short-term speed forecasting is better than the performance for volume forecasting. Moreover, the accuracy performance of VAR-MGARCH model is better than the ARIMA-SV and ARIMA-GARCH models, but the ARIMA-SV model performs better than the ARIMA-GARCH and VAR-MGARCH models in terms of the short-term uncertainty forecasting.
