Publication year 1999 Abstract Microscopic traffic simulation constitutes a useful method for predicting the effects of new transport telematic systems in road traffic. In such a model, the driver model is a key element describing the dynamic individual driving behavior in relation to the vehicle, the road environment, and other traffic participants. The driver model presented in this paper was developed partially on the basis of literature, and partially on own experimental research with a driving simulator and an instrumented vehicle. The driver model includes free driving (speed control), car following control), and lane-change behavior. The driver model interacts with a vehicle model at a detailed level (pedals and gear states). The driver model uses the vehicle controls with the aim to reach or maintain the individual, situation-dependent desired speed or following distance. The model includes aspects such as reaction time, perception thresholds for speed differences, and comfort levels for accelerating/decelerating. Since the traffic simulation model was designed to study the effects of systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the driver model also includes a component that describes the driver's interaction with ACC. In addition to a description of the model and its background, an illustration of the model's application is given in a case study on ACC, where the ACC's reference speed was influenced externally by a modeled beacon system. In conditions with high traffic volumes, the beacon system influenced the traffic upstream to try to create a homogeneous, steady trafficdy traffic flow.Dit paper geeft een overzicht van een bij TNO-TM ontwikkeld bestuurdersmodel en van een toepassing daarvan in microscopische verkeessimulatie.
