This paper presents the development of a comprehensive integrated GNSS/INU simulator consisting of a microscopic traffic simulator based on VISSIM, a vehicle dynamics simulator based on CarSim, and a GNSS/INU simulator. The resulting GNSS/INU simulator provides an integrated design, test and evaluation platform for exploring new ideas, developing advanced(More)
In crashes between heavy trucks and light vehicles, most of the fatalities are the occupants of the light vehicle. A reduction in heavy truck stopping distance should lead to a reduction in the number of crashes, the severity of crashes, and consequently the numbers of fatalities and injuries.
