Evaluation and Model Development of Transfer Resistance Factors for Bulk Freight Transportation
Choi, Chang-Ho ;
The Journal of The Korea Institute of Intelligent Transport Systems, volume 15, issue 3, 2016, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.12815/kits.2016.15.3.001
The present study aims to evaluate transfer resistance factors in railway stations and draw new implications. The data used for the model estimation are RP (revealed preference) data and SP (stated preference) data. Two types of models were used for the analysis: integration model which combined line-haul stage, transfer stage and shuttle stage and separation model which assessed the three stages separately. The results revealed that while bulk freight shippers mainly focused on line-haul stage, they put emphasis on transfer stage as well. It`s especially notable that transfer stage was considered more important than shuttle stage. Therefore, in future transportation policies concerning rail freight, it would be crucial not only to enhance the competitiveness of line-haul stage but also make improvements in transfer stage regarding railway stations.

Walking behaviors are one of the most basic transport modes in daily life. As a result, the efforts and concerns on pedestrians are consistently increased. This study tried to reveal significant factors for pedestrian volumes through structural equation models and compare the impacts of the whole time of day, off-peak time, peak time on the pedestrian volumes. The results of the analysis show that commercial business factors, accessibility factors, walking environment factors are the most significant factors that increase pedestrian volumes. Whereas, housing factors do not contribute to increase the pedestrian volumes. In the non-peak time, the weight of commercial business factors is higher than the whole time of day, while the weight housing factors, accessibility factors, walking environment factors are lower. In the peak time, however, the weight of commercial business factors decreases rather than the whole time of day, while the weight of the other factors increase.

DOI : 10.12815/kits.2016.15.3.023
This study identified the factors that affect travel time budget by mode for traveler in Seoul using the SUR model. Individual, household and TAZ characteristics were selected as the explanatory variables. Transportation modes are summarized from 18 types to 6 types(walking, personal car, bus, subway, rail and bicycle). The results showed a distinct difference between personal transportation and public transportation. First of all, People who owned a car and driver`s licence tend to prefer personal transportation. In addition, we can confirm the relationship between the bus and the subway which are most typical public transportation. Passengers who can available a personal mode preferred the subway than the bus. It is expected to suggest various implications related to the public transportation policy for Seoul metropolitan area.

Han, Eum ; Kim, Sang Beom ; Rho, Jeong Hyun ; Yun, Ilsoo ;
The Journal of The Korea Institute of Intelligent Transport Systems, volume 15, issue 3, 2016, Pages 34~44
DOI : 10.12815/kits.2016.15.3.034
This study was initiated to evaluate the performance of methodologies to estimate the space mean speed(SMS) using the time mean speed(TMS) which was collected from the vehicle detection system(VDS) in expressways. To this end, the methodologies presented in prior studies were firstly summarized. It is very hard to achieve exact SMSs and TMSs due to mechanical and communication errors in the field. Thus, a microscopic traffic simulation model was utilized to evaluated the performance. As a result, the harmonic mean and volume-distance weighted harmonic mean were close to the SMS in the case in which the TMSs of individual vehicles were used. However, when the 30-second-interval aggregated TMS were used, the volume-distance weighted harmonic mean was outstanding. In this study, a radar detector was installed in the Joongbu expressway to collect the SMS. The trajectory of individual vehicles collected from the detector were used to calculate the SMS, which was compared with the estimates using other methodologies selected in this study. As a result, the volume-distance weighted mean was turned out to be close to the SMS. However, as the congestion becomes severe. the deviation between the two speed becomes bigger.

Existing real-time signal control system was brought up typical problems which are supersaturated condition, point detection system and loop detection system. For that reason, the next generation signal control system of advanced form is required. Following thesis aimed at calculating queue length for the next generation signal control system to utilize basic parameter of signal control in crossing queue instead of the volume of real-time through traffic. Overflow saturated condition which was appeared as limit of existing system was focused to set-up range. Real-time location information of individual vehicle which is collected by GPS data. It converted into the coordinate to apply shock wave model with an linear equation that is extracted by regression model applied by a least square. Through the calculated queue length and link length by contrast, If queue length exceed the link, queue of downstream intersection is included as queue length that upstream queue vehicle is judeged as affecting downstream intersection. In result of operating correlation analysis among link travel time to judge confidence of extracted queue length, Both of links were shown over 0.9 values. It is appeared that both of links are highly correlated. Following research is significant using real-time data to calculate queue length and contributing to signal control system.

In cumulative transfer functions, as number of transfer increase, the impact of individual transfer to transfer cost increase linearly or non linearly. This function can effectively explain various passengers`s travel behavior who choose their travel routes in integrated transit line networks including bus and railway modes. Using the function, it is possible to simulate general situations such that even though more travel times are expected, less number of transfer routes are preferred. However, because travel cost with cumulative transfer function is known as non additive cost function types in route search algorithms, finding an optimal route in integrated transit networks is confronted by the insolvable enumeration of all routes in many cases. This research proposes a methodology for finding an optimal path considering cumulative transfer function. For this purpose, the reversal phenomenon of optimal path generated in route search process is explained. Also a heuristic methodology for selecting an optimal route among multiple routes predefined by the K path algorithm. The incoming link based entire path deletion method is adopted for finding K ranking path thanks to the merit of security of route optimality condition. Through case studies the proposed methodology is discussed in terms of the applicability of real situations.

In 2012, total GHG emissions in transport sector reached 88 Million ton CO2eq. The emissions generated in the road accounted for 94% of the transport sector. Currently, there are many efforts to operate an education and campaign for eco-driving. However study for eco-friendly vehicle control considering road alignment is limited. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to address fuel-efficient driving strategy in horizontal curve section. To fulfill the goal, designed ideal freeway horizontal curve road follows regulations about road structure. And safety speed is calculated for considering vehicle`s safety on horizontal curve road. Authors composed the acceleration and deceleration scenario for each horizontal curve section and generated the speed profiles that are limited by the safety speed. Speed profiles are converted into force that horizontal curve affect to fuel consumption. Then, we calculated fuel consumption using Comprehensive Modal Emission Model. Then, we developed eco-driving strategy by selecting most fuel-efficient scenario. To validate this strategy, we selected study site and compared fuel consumption for eco and manual driving. As the result, fuel consumption when driver used eco-driving was lessened by 20.73% than that of manual driving.

Recently the passenger of railway satisfaction levels are lowered. the reason why the railway station was built without considering the increased passenger due to diversification(transfer, shopping, and etc.) of the domestic railway station infrastructure. Especially, in case of KTX Gwangju-Songjeong Station, the number of its passenger has been increased about more than three times since its opening in 2015, so that there are much inconvenience generated in the station congested with passengers. his study aims to excute using Pedestrian simulation and Design Hourly Factor concepts of Highway Engineering, in order to designing the optimum area through the passenger demand forecast for each station. For this analysis was divided into the second stage. Frist, the railway passenger was calculated by using the methodology of Design Hourly Factor that is used during road design in the aspect of traffic engineering. Second, we tried to analyze the level of service in each railway station facility through the pedestrian simulation. Analytical results show that utilizing pedestrian simulation provides verification for calculation of LOS of each railway station facility. Therefore, In the future when designing railway station of facilities will be possible to suggest the facilities area based on LOS.

As the rural areas have experienced the population reduction and the aging, the service level of public transit decreases. This study analyzes the effecting factor to user satisfaction of demand response transport(DRT) as alternative to rural public transit by the quantile regression that aims at estimating either the conditional median or other quantiles of the response variable. Jeonbuk Province tested DRT operations in Dongsang of Wanju County and Sannae of Jeongup City each in 2015. The user DRT satisfaction of Wanju was higher than one of Jeongup in basic statistics analysis. The difference in satisfaction between higher quantile and lower quntile of Wanju is smaller than one of Jeongupy as a result of quantile regression analysis. Also, Wanju DRT continues the second test operation of DRT as satisfaction from Ordinary Least Squares(OLS) close to higher satisfaction quantile.

This paper analyzed and compared the service level and satisfaction of the sidewalks in collector roads from 6 different location, which has a lot of volume of pedestrians. For the study, it performed an investigation of road geometry, flow, research about satisfaction of walking and video recording. Based on this data, this study computed the service level of the sidewalks and pedestrian satisfaction. This study made a sense of correlation between service level and satisfaction. Also it focused on factors influencing on the effectiveness of satisfaction. This study also analyzed the change of walking behavior chracteristics according to the change of the level of satisfaction. This study adopted Multi-Modal Level of Service(MMLOS) method, because it could consider more factors. This study reached the conclusion that MMLOS method cannot completely reflect the level of pedestrian satisfaction. We have to consider more factors than in the current system for use in the development of sidewalk design. The result of this study is expected to reflect the pedestrian satisfaction in future sidewalks design.

Visible light communication using LED is a technique for transmitting digital data using the light of the LED. Recently, high-speed data rate plays an important role. Therefore, many scholars have researched the MIMO-VLC which is able to increase data rate using a lot of LED transmitters. However, it has problems such as light interference and flicker when transmitting different bit. Many researcher have focused on reduce interference. However it is not considered about flicker problem. Flicker is defined unstable brightness. It occurred the tired of human eyes, lowers eyesight and also decreases concentration. In order to solve this flicker problem in MIMO-VLC, we propose the PFM(Parallel Flicker Mitigation) code. PFM code using combinatorial theory can maintain constant brightness the whole bit duration. Therefore, it is possible to assure the brightness by confirm simulation results.
