Microscopic traffic-simulation tools are increasingly being applied to evaluate the impacts of a wide variety of intelligent transport systems (ITS) applications and other dynamic problems that are difficult to solve using traditional analytical models. The accuracy of a traffic-simulation system depends highly on the quality of the traffic-flow model at(More)
This paper presents a car-following model that was developed using a neural network approach for mapping perceptions to actions. The model has a similar formulation to the desired spacing models that do not consider reaction time or attempt to explain the behavioral aspects of car following. The model's performance was evaluated based on field data and(More)
Common measures of performance of incident detection algorithms are detection rate, false alarm rate and mean time-to-detect. These measures are not independent and it is therefore necessary to determine the underlying performance trade off. In this paper, the performance of the incident detection algorithm currently implemented on Melbourne’s freeways is(More)
This paper presents findings from a comparative evaluation of two Australian power-based models of fuel consumption and environmental emissions using traffic simulation. The simulation approach provides a number of advantages for this type of work through detailed modelling of road geometry and grade, driver behaviour, vehicle performance and traffic(More)
This paper presents a car following model which was developed using reactive agent techniques based on a neural network approach for mapping perceptions to actions. The model has a similar formulation to the desired spacing models which do not consider reaction time or attempt to explain the behavioural aspects of car following. A number of error tests were(More)
This paper presents results from a simulation study which aimed to quantify the impacts of incident management strategies. The evaluation was based on a large-scale micro-simulation model covering an area approximately 122 square kilometres, including 43 kilometres of motorway and about 85 kilometres of surface roads on the Gold Coast, Australia. The study(More)
