Abstract: Distance- or usage-based road pricing is viewed as an effective alternative to traditional facility-, cordon- and area-based pricing that typically rely on fixed infrastructure. I will present our work on the use of feature-variant clustering methods, OPTICS and HDBSCAN*, as a systematic approach for tolling zone definition, as well as the utilization of DynaMIT2.0, a framework for predictive distance-based toll optimization to evaluate network performance for the various tolling zone definitions derived from the aforementioned feature-variant clustering methods.
