Microscopic traffic modelling is a popular tool in the transportation field, but using such models comes with significant data needs in order to properly calibrate them. Two important driver behavior parameters in these models are the preferred time headways and standstill distances. In this paper, an economical method for collecting headways and standstill(More)
This paper presents a framework for evaluating the reliability of probe-sourced traffic speed data for congestion detection and general infrastructure performance assessment. The methodology outlined employs pattern recognition and time-series analysis to accurately quantify the similarity and dissimilarities between probe-sourced and benchmarked local(More)
