  1. 1. Mimic: A Microscopic Simulation Model for Rural Road Traffic

    Author : Stig O. Simonsson; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; computer model; time headway; log normal distribution; Chi-Square test; gap-acceptance; rural road network; car-following; traffic simulation model; alignment; sight distance; Kolmogorov-Smirnoff test; software system; statistics;

    Abstract : The purpose of this dissertation is to outline the theoretical basis of a road traffic simulation model, named Mimic, that constitutes the key elements of a system for estimating road user effects and environmental impacts. The simulation model suggested is a microscopic road traffic simulation model and it is structured to be used for networks of rural roads. READ MORE

  2. 2. Simulation of Surrounding Vehicles in Driving Simulators

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Johan Olstam; Jan Lundgren; Jonas Jansson; Mikael Adlers; Pontus Matstoms; Martin Fellendorf; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traffic; Micro; Simulation; Mode; Overtaking; Lane changing; Car following; Rural road; Mathematical model; Simulator; Thesis; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory;

    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

    Abstract : Microscopic traffic simulation has proven to be a useful tool for analysis of varioustraffic systems. This thesis consider microscopic traffic simulation of rural roads andthe use of traffic simulation for evaluation of driver assistance systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Driver Modeling based on computational intelligence approaches exploaration and Modeling driver-following data collected by an instrumented vehicle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Xiaoliang Ma; Karl-Lennart Bång; Mark Dougherty; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with modeling of driver behavior based on data collected from real traffic using an advanced instrumented vehicle. In particular, the focus is on driver-following behavior (often called car-following in transport science) for microscopic simulation of road traffic systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. Safety margins in the driver

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Rickard Nilsson; David Lee; [2001]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : The primary aim of this thesis is to highlight the most important features of driving and to describe the models that have attempted to conceptualise these features. The discussion focuses on the concept of "safety margin." The concept is elaborated upon in an effort to enhance its usefulness as an empirical tool in traffic research. READ MORE
