Characterizing and modeling observed lane-changing behavior : Lane-vehicle-based microscopic simulation on urban street network Wei, Heng et al

By: Wei, HengPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2000Description: nr 1710, s. 104-13Subject(s): USA | Lane changing | Micro | Simulation | Mathematical model | Driver | Behaviour | In situ | Measurement | 25Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1710Location: Abstract: Key findings are discussed regarding characteristics of lane-changing behavior based on observations of an urban street network. An in-depth exploration of observed lane-changing behavior and its modeling were conducted using vehicle trajectory data extracted from video observations using VEVID, a software package developed by the authors, integrated with a video-capture system. As a result, rules for modeling lane-changing behavior are proposed with respect to various types of lane changes. A lane-changing model consists of three components: a decision model, a condition model, and a maneuver model. Drivers' decisions to change lanes depend on travel maneuver plans, the current lane type (i.e., the relationship between the current lane and the driver's planned route), and traffic conditions in the current and adjacent lanes. A lane-changing condition model is the description of acceptable conditions for different types of lane changes. A lane-changing maneuver model describes a vehicle's speed and duration when a certain type of lane change occurs. All of these models are established in a heuristic structure.
