Nowadays, car following models, as the most popular microscopic traffic flow modeling, are increasingly being used by transportation experts to evaluate new Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications. This paper presents a car-following model that was developed using an adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) to simulate and predict the(More)
The control of car following is essential to its safety and its operational efficiency. For this purpose, this paper builds a linear, continuous and time-delay model of car following. And then, presents a controller based on an adaptive network fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) for the car-following collision avoidance system to adaptively control the speed of(More)
In this work the role of organizational learning in catching-up process is studied by means of system dynamics modeling. This model includes major transform/creation phases of knowledge, i.e. internalization, socialization, externalization and combination and shows how these mechanisms cause increase of organizational knowledge level and its catching-up(More)
Studies have shown the detection of emerging contaminants (ECs), of which pharmaceuticals are a subset, in surface waters across the United States. The objective of this study was to develop methods, and apply them, to evaluate the potential for food chain transfer when EC-containing waters are used for crop irrigation. Greenhouse experiments were performed(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate a recently developed preclinical injection and cavity preparation model in local anesthesia. Thirty-three dental students administered an inferior alveolar nerve block injection in the model, followed by preparation on a tooth. The injection was evaluated by three observers, and the feedback from the model was(More)
The stability of a four motor-wheel drive electric vehicle is improved by independent control of wheel torques. An innovative Fuzzy Direct Yaw Control method together with a novel wheel slip controller is used to enhance the vehicle stability and safety. Also a new speed estimator is presented in this paper, which is used for slip estimation. The intrinsic(More)
