SVTRIP (Stochastic Vehicle Trip Prediction) generates a naturalistic vehicle speed profile (vehicle speed as a function of time at 1 Hz or more) for a given trip or route. The trip provided as an input is defined by the attributes of its sub-segments, such as travel time, distance and speed limit. The inputs can be provided directly by the user, extracted from digital maps, or generated from macroscopic or mesoscopic traffic flow simulators. The generated speed profiles can be used to predict vehicle energy consumption and operations for trips with low-resolution information. The algorithm used for generation relies on Markov Chains, making the generated speed profiles stochastic.
