Abstract: In-vehicle Route Guidance Systems (RGS) have been proposed as a potentially cost-effective means of alleviating the impact of traffic congestion in urban areas. This paper describes means of alleviating the impact of traffic congestion in urban areas. This paper describes the enhancements and extensions of the Integration traffic simulation model's features for representing the routing behavior of vehicles having varying levels of access to the RGS, different system architectures, and different routing objectives. In addition, various tools for modeling the routing behavior and response of non-guided background vehicles are demanded.
