Part of the book series: Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems ((LNNS,volume 508))

Included in the following conference series:


Having the ability to accurately predict the traffic situation on urban roads can be useful for creating administrative traffic control systems, navigation software solutions or for general public awareness. In this paper we are describing our methodology for creating a new experimental setup and then analyzing the performance results of different neural network models for predicting Traffic Indexes calculated from public transportation positioning data as time series.
