Abstract—With increasing numbers of vehicles using low level automation and higher level automation expected in the future, significant effects are expected on traffic flow. Despite much simulation and driving simulator research on SAE level 1 vehicles, there remain many questions in regard to the effects of the systems on traffic flow. The...

In this contribution a model-based analysis of the application of bounded acceleration in traffic flow is considered as a cause for the capacity drop. This is performed in a Lagrangian formulation of the kinematic wave model with general vehicle specific characteristics. Unconstrained overtaking is presumed, which allows a demonstration to be...

This contribution discusses how traffic management, and many other measures that can be categorised as Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS, i.e. all traffic and transport measures that use ICT) can help reduce noise levels by influencing mobility choices and driving behaviour. Several examples of such measures and how they impact noise levels...

Dynamic traffic management and information is used by road operators in order to improve network utilisation, safety or the environment. Examples are influencing the traffic flow by influencing speeds, lane use, route choice or merging operations by employing variable message signs (VMS), Dynamic Route Information Panels (DRIPs), ramp metering...

The need for evaluation of ITS systems requires new modelling tools that allow a detailed modelling of both the roadside and the in-vehicle systems. One of the elements needed is a reliable longitudinal driver model. In this paper we outline the requirements of such a model and review the models that are available in the literature. We select...

This paper describes an ongoing research project at TNO in the Netherlands for assessing the safety of road networks using micro-simulation techniques. A benefit of micro-simulation comes from the ability to evaluate the safety of new ITS systems, new infrastructure design, management strategies and different traffic compositions beforehand. The...
