With the arrival of new technologies more en-route traffic information sources have become available, especially in-car information sources. The aim of this study is to gain more insight into the effect of multiple, and possibly conflicting, sources of information on route choice and driver behaviour. In a driving simulator experiment,...

Recent advances in digital beam forming for phased arrays in combination with digital signal processing should enable the development of multibeam radar in a bistatic configuration. In the bistatic setting, the pulse travelling outward from the transmitter should be followed or “chased” by the receiver. During transmission, depending on the...

We investigated whether motion sickness analogous to carsickness can be studied in a moving base simulator, despite the limited motion envelope. Importantly, to avoid simulator sickness, vision outside the simulator cabin was restricted. Participants (N = 16) were exposed blindfolded to 15-min lateral sinusoidal motion at 0.2 Hz and 0.35 Hz on...

Vehicle platooning has been attracting attention recently because of its ability to improve road capacity, safety and fuel efficiency. Vehicles communicate using Vehicle-to- Vehicle (V2V) wireless communication, making their status (acceleration, position, etc.) available to other vehicles. Shock waves, i.e. zones of reduced traffic speed that...

Early detection of congestion is essential to traffic management. Conventional loop or microwave detectors provide flow and speed information but involve significant delays and they offer sparse coverage. To improve this situation, other data sources must be used. This paper investigates the potential use of floating car data (FCD) and ETC ...

Introduction: This paper describes the modification and development of methodologies to assess the impacts of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) applications for Vulnerable Road users (VRUs) in the domains of safety, mobility and comfort. This effort was carried out in the context of the VRUITS project whose aim was to produce results at the EU...

Introduction: This paper describes the development of an architecture for the integration of Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs), i.e. pedestrians, cyclists and powered two-wheelers (PTWs) in Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) systems, and the requirements for VRU devices. Methods: This paper starts with a literature overview on research related to safety...

This paper presents the results of a safety impact assessment, providing quantitative estimates of the safety impacts of ten intelligent transport systems (ITS) which were designed to improve safety, mobility and comfort of vulnerable road users (VRUs). The evaluation method originally developed to assess safety impacts of ITS for cars was now...

In this paper, in addition to the main functionality of vehicle following, cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) is enabled with additional features of gap closing and collision avoidance. Due to its nonlinear nature, a control objective such as collision avoidance, cannot be addressed using a linear controller such as a PD controller....

License plate matching plays an important role in applications like law enforcement, traffic management and road pricing, where the plate is first recognized and then compared to a database of authorized vehicle registration plates. Unfortunately, there are several privacy related issues that should be taken care of before deploying plate...

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are becoming ubiquitous, and gradually take over the role of human drivers in the vision of the automotive sector. Humans are different from most systems: while in general humans exhibit a much higher error rate when performing specific functions, they are also unmatched in their adaptability, and their...

Transport is an important source of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Although the applications of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for transport, also known as intelligent transport systems, are seen as having great potential to help reduce emissions from road transport, their exact impact on CO<inf>2</inf> emissions...

Intelligent transport systems are accepted as an integral part of the transport system. They have high potential in reducing the carbon footprint of traffic while improving efficient and safe transport. The calculation of CO<inf>2</inf> emissions arising from the transport sector incorporating the impact of ITS is a challenging task. A...

Heavily used urban networks remain a challenge for travel time prediction because traffic flow is rarely homogeneous and is also subject to a wide variety of disturbances. Various models, some of which use traffic flow theory and some of which are data driven, have been developed to predict traffic flow and travel times. Many of these perform...

Weather conditions are widely acknowledged to contribute to the occurrence of congestion on motorway traffic by influencing both traffic supply and traffic demand. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper that explicitly integrates supply and demand effects in predicting the influence of adverse weather conditions on the probability...

In this paper a traffic-control algorithm is designed that creates a feasible traffic plan when normal schedules are somehow disturbed in a train traffic simulation environment. The main questions That are handled in this algorithm are: (1) when must the decision be made to make a new traffic plan? and (2) How to create the new traffic plan?...

Driving simulators have become an established tool in driver behaviour research by offering a controllable, safe and cost-effective alternative to real world driving. A challenge for using driving simulators as a research tool has been to elicit driving behaviour that equals real world driving. With respect to driver headways few studies have...

Cooperative systems require the presence of multiple cooperative ITS stations to be effective and able to cooperate. Testing a single cooperative vehicle or road side unit will require a large number of other cooperative vehicles. Equipping additional test vehicles is expensive on hardware, drivers, and test facilities. It is also time consuming...

Traffic simulation is conventionally based on travel time as input to the cost function. We include vehicle emission into cost function and try to investigate its impact on traffic management as well as network performance. As the emission is the product of vehicle movement, we use a bi-level approach to model both the cost (with travel time and...

In probabilistic traffic models, consideration of stochasticity in the dynamics of traffic gives a closer representation of a traffic system in comparison to that of a deterministic approach. Monte Carlo simulation is a broadly accepted method to consider variations in traffic within modelling. In this contribution, the possibility of increasing...
