  1. 1. A model for simulation and generation of surrounding vehicles in driving simulators

    University dissertation from Institutionen för teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Johan Olstam; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory; Traffic; Simulation; Model; Traffic flow; Vehicle; Micro; Overtaking; Vehicle spacing; Deceleration; Acceleration; Mathematical model; Simulator; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Technology; Traffic Simulation; Driving Simulator; Traffic Generation; Microscopic; Traffic models; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Driving simulators are used to conduct experiments on for example driver behavior, road design, and vehicle characteristics. The results of the experiments often depend on the traffic conditions. One example is the evaluation of cellular phones and how they affect driving behavior. READ MORE

  3. 3. Railway operation analysis Evaluation of quality, infrastructure and timetable on single and double-track lines with analytical models and simulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Olov Lindfeldt; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Railway operation; Railway capacity; Single-track; Double-track; Partial double-track; Inter-station distance; Delay; Delay propagation; Crossing; Overtaking; Timetable flexibility; Simulation; Experimental design; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract : This thesis shows the advantages of simple models for analysis of railway operation. It presents two tools for infrastructure and timetable planning. It shows how the infrastructure can be analysed through fictive line designs, how the timetable can be treated as a variable and how delays can be used as performance measures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Simulation of Surrounding Vehicles in Driving Simulators

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Johan Olstam; Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory; Traffic; Micro; Simulation; Mode; Overtaking; Lane changing; Car following; Rural road; Mathematical model; Simulator; Thesis; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Driving simulators and microscopic traffic simulation are important tools for making evaluations of driving and traffic. A driving simulator is de-signed to imitate real driving and is used to conduct experiments on driver behavior. Traffic simulation is commonly used to evaluate the quality of service of different infrastructure designs. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Traffic Simulation Modeling Framework for Rural Highways

    University dissertation from Institutionen för teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Andreas Tapani; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory; Traffic; Micro; Simulation; Model; Overtaking; Speed; Headway; Rural road; Electronic driving aid; Mathematical model; TECHNOLOGY Other technology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper; Traffic Simulation; Rural Highway; Level-of-Serivice; Road safety; safety indicators; Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ADAS ;

    Abstract : Models based on micro-simulation of traffic flows have proven to be useful tools in the study of various traffic systems. Today, there is a wealth of traffic microsimulation models developed for freeway and urban street networks. The road mileage is however in many countries dominated by rural highways. READ MORE
