Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new path finding model, called the α-reliable mean-excess model, to determine an optimal path with the minimum mean-excess travel time required to meet the user-specified reliability threshold α. The model explicitly considers both reliability and unreliability aspects of travel time variability in the travelers' decision process. It provides a more accurate and complete picture in reflecting travelers' risk preferences under an uncertain environment. The problem is formulated as a stochastic mixed-integer problem and solved by a double-relaxation scheme. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the characteristics of the model as well as the solution algorithm.
