Abstract

The project aims at the development and use of a series of calibrated microscopic simulation models to investigate the potential range of RTI measures to provide improvements in efficiency, safety and economy on interurban highways. The models are: MISSION, for simulation of traffic flow on multi-lane, one-way highways; SWEDISH, for simulating traffic flow on two and three lanes of two-way traffic; and CURITAS, simulating automatic control systems for vehicle movement. The three main areas investigated are: headway advice and control systems, acting on vehicle to vehicle-following relationships; speed advice and control systems; lane-changing aids on multi-laned roads, and overtaking aids on two-lane, two-way roads.
