DynaMIT is a simulation-based Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA) model system that estimates and predicts traffic conditions in real time. It has been used as the basis for over 30 research papers over the past 15 years and it was awarded the 2011 IEEE Outstanding ITS application award. Its next generation, DynaMIT2.0, is currently being implemented with novel functionality, namely the incorporation of public transport models and a strategy simulation facility to allow network authorities to identify useful solutions to mitigate forecast problems. A context mining and a scenario analyser module will also be included to make sense of unstructured information such as textual incident feeds or special event information from the Web. DynaMIT 2.0 will also provide more information about its outputs such as the confidence of any prediction. DynaMIT 2.0 will also have increased robustness to faulty sensor data. This paper describes the existing key concepts of DynaMIT which will be retained, as well as a summary of all the new enhancements.
