Taxi Demand Prediction using L-CNN

2020 International Journal of Emerging Trends in Engineering Research  
For making the trust between the drivers and clients the structure needs a qualified prediction framework.  ...  In transportation, taxi demand is a main issue in urban communities especially during the peak time. So there is a strong need for taxi prediction framework to satisfy the passenger's request.  ...  This figuring is the achievement of significant learning in past quite a while. Discontinuous neural frameworks produce desires result for the progressive data.  ...

Comparison of Driving Forces to Increasing Traffic Flow and Transport Emissions in Philippine Regions: A Spatial Decomposition Study

Geoffrey Udoka Nnadiri, Anthony S. F. Chiu, Jose Bienvenido Manuel Biona, Neil Stephen Lopez
2021 Sustainability  
Population growth is revealed as the main driver to traffic flow in most regions with the exception of a few regions and the national capital which are driven by economic activity.  ...  This study demonstrates a novel approach using spatial logarithmic mean Divisia index (LMDI) to analyze drivers of traffic flow and its corresponding CO2 emissions in regions through an illustrative case  ...  However, if a trendline is fitted with the data, an asymptotic curve can be imagined, suggesting that a saturation point can be reached.  ...
