Travel time estimation is one of the core tasks for the development of intelligent transportation systems. Most previous works model the road segments or intersections separately by learning their spatio-temporal characteristics to estimate travel time. However, due to the continuous alternations of the road segments and intersections in a path, the dynamic features are supposed to be coupled and interactive. Therefore, modeling one of them limits further improvement in accuracy of estimating

To address the above problems, a novel graph-based deep learning framework for travel time estimation is proposed in this paper, namely Spatio-Temporal Dual Graph Neural Networks (STDGNN). Specifically, we first establish the node-wise and edge-wise graphs to respectively characterize the adjacency relations of intersections and that of road segments. In order to extract the joint spatio-temporal correlations of the intersections and road segments, we adopt the spatio-temporal dual graph learning approach that incorporates multiple spatial-temporal dual graph learning modules with multi-scale network architectures for capturing multi-level spatial-temporal information from the dual graph. Finally, we employ the multi-task learning approach to estimate the travel time of a given whole route, each road segment and intersection simultaneously. We conduct extensive experiments to evaluate our proposed model on three real-world trajectory datasets, and the experimental results show that STDGNN significantly outperforms several state-of-art baselines.
