In offer of the traffic information to the drivers, it is the big factor that decides quality of the traffic information whether the traffic information and conformity with the real condition experienced by a drivers. The OD time is useful information because the drivers can know the time of arrival to the destination. However only using the real-time traffic information, it is different from the time of arrival to display at origin and the time of arrival at destination because it can’t consider the change of traffic condition when they arrive at the destination. So it is generally to raise the benefit of the drivers with the traffic information prediction that can decrease the difference. But now (in particularly the prediction) in evaluating the quality of the traffic information, there are methods to evaluate the traffic jam but not any effective methods to evaluate the traffic information with link travel time. This article suggests the method of evaluating the quality of the prediction with the RMSE in addition to the standard deviation and considers the quality of the traffic information prediction that can offer useful information to the drivers.
