Modelling Eco-Driving Support System for Microscopic Traffic Simulation

Microscopic traffic simulation is an ideal tool for investigating the network level impacts of eco-driving in different networks and traffic conditions, under varying penetration rates and driver compliance rates. The reliability of the traffic...

Pavement enveloped texture profile calculation and it's impact on pavement skid resistance

To analyze tire-road contact characteristics and the effect of the contact on pavement skid resistance, the two-dimensional discrete data of the road texture profile was measured using the road surface tester, and the enveloped profile was...

Simulation of vehicles in a driving simulator using microscopic traffic simulation

This chapter describes a model that generates and simulates surrounding vehicles for a driving simulator. The proposed model generates a traffic stream, corresponding to a given target flow and simulates realistic interactions between vehicles. The...
