Traffic Evaluation Model of the Opening Road in Residential area based on VISSIM simulation

Research article of International Journal of Communications and Networks Traffic Evaluation Model of the Opening Road in Residential area based on VISSIM simulation Boying Lv1*, Guozhi Li1, Tianlong Wang2, Yishuai Tian1 1College of Hydraulic & Environmental Engineering, China Three Gorges University, Yichang 443002, China. 2College of Civil Engineering & Architecture, China Three Gorges University, Yichang, 443002, China. With the increasing urban road traffic pressure in closed residential areas, the problem of road patency in residential areas has become a hot topic. This paper established a traffic evaluation Model of the opening community based on VISSIM simulation. We constructed different types of residential areas, and compared the impact on traffic after opening different kinds of areas. With the analytic hierarchy process, we selected ten important indicators from three aspects. Then, the parameters of the road structure were put in the VISSIM simulation, and quantitatively analyze the impact of various types of residential areas opening. The results showed that changing the traffic rules at the intersection of the community has the greatest improvement in traffic capacity, reaching 89%. The influence of increasing the internal road and changing the external road structure of the city is more visible, reaching about 60%. The overall opening-up policy should be suitable for different localities. Keywords: Community opening; VISSIM; Traffic network; AHP ...

A Comparative Analysis of Four Path Optimization Algorithms

Review article of International Journal of Communications and Networks A Comparative Analysis of Four Path Optimization Algorithms Charles OKONJI *; Olawale J. OMOTOSHO; OGBONNA, A. C. Department of Computer Science, Babcock University Path / route optimization for promptly moving equipment and personnel from base to disaster location has remained a nagging challenges for effective emergency response particularly within the context of developing countries. Bad road networks, poor and outdated navigation systems, faulty transportation vehicles, and traffic congestion remain among the top challenges militating against effective emergency response, and this has resulted in mounting statistics of losses for lives and properties within such jurisdictions. The pressing question has been: how can emergency response itinerary be planned and scheduled most optimally and reliably in the face of these challenges? This research paper compares four of the more popular path / route optimization algorithms (the Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm, Dijkstra’s Algorithm, Bellman Ford’s Algorithm, and Suurballe’s Algorithm), in order to determine the trade-offs and advantages that they present with respect to each other, and propose actionable recommendations for implementation. The findings of this research would prove useful for emergency response planning, particularly within the context of developing countries where these challenges are commonplace.

Enhanced Churn Prediction in the Telecommunication Industry

Research article of International Journal of Communications and Networks ENHANCED CHURN PREDICTION IN THE TELECOMMUNICATION INDUSTRY Adeniyi Ben, Awodele, O., Ogbonna, A.C., Kuyoro, S.O., *Ebiesuwa Seun Department of Computer Science, Babcock University, Nigeria Prediction models are usually built by applying a supervised learning algorithm to historical data. This involves the use of data analytics system that uses real-time integration and dynamic real time responses data to detect churn risks. Subscribe are increasingly terminating their membership agreement with telecommunication companies through mobile number portability (MNP) in order to subscribe to another competitor companies. To model the Customer prediction, a Markov Chain Model will be used. The Markov model allows for more flexibility than most other potential models, and can incorporate variables such as non-constant retention rate, which is not possible in the simpler models. The model allows looking at individual customer relationships as well as averages, and its probabilistic nature makes the uncertainty apprehensible. The Markov Decision Process is also appealing, but since dynamic decisions along the lifetime of the customer will not be evaluated the Markov Chain is the simplest model that still meets the requirements. Each state in the Markov Chain will represent a person being a customer for one month, with an infinite number of states. The transition probability to move from one state to the next is equivalent to a customer retaining with the operator to the next month. A customer that has churned will be considered lost forever. Once the retention and churn rates are determined, the reference churn value for each customer will be computed. The churn rate will be calculated using MATLAB Monte Carlo simulations, running a large number of fictitious customer-company relationship processes, and extracting the results of the average customer. Using simulation approach gives better result than analytical methods, since an indefinite ...

Independent operation Advantage integration Complementary development—An analysis of the relationship between newspapers and websites

Review article of International Journal of Communications and Networks Independent operation Advantage integration Complementary development---An analysis of the relationship between newspapers and websites Yang HuaiZhou Donghai Branch of Lianyun Gang Newspaper Media Group Co., Ltd. 3 Chaoyang East Road, Haizhou District, Lianyungang City, Jiangsu Province, China. The rise of online media has left paper media, especially newspapers, in a very awkward position and there is still a debate on the relationship between newspapers and websites, many people in the industry called the two a relationship of “newspapers and the Internet is father and son”, which is a false understanding. This paper holds that in the case of newspapers and networks belonging to the same newspaper office, the two should operate independently, integrate their respective advantages, complement each other, inter-develope, so as to implement a win-win situation for newspapers and websites.
