The vision of intelligent vehicles traveling in road networks has prompted numerous concepts to control future traffic flow, one of which is the in-vehicle actuation of traffic control signals. The key of this concept is using intelligent vehicles as actuators for traffic control systems, replacing the traditional roadside systems. Under this concept, we(More)
Eco-routing is the identification of the most energy-efficient route for a vehicle to travel between two points and is offered as a way in which drivers can reduce fuel consumption and consequently reduce the carbon footprint of their journeys. This paper covers the first step in the process of investigating the impacts of digital map attributes on the(More)
This paper presents an evaluation of two typical situations of Microscopic Dynamic Traffic Management. Where Dynamic Traffic Management aims to more efficiently use existing road capacity by generic measures, Microscopic Dynamic Traffic Management anticipates suboptimal use of the available infrastructure by disturbing behavior of one or a few drivers.(More)
Free speeds are defined as the speeds pedestrians like to walk with when they are not influenced by other nearby pedestrians. Free speeds differ among pedestrians being influenced by personal characteristics, characteristics of the infrastructure and external conditions. Free speeds and their distribution play an important role in many traffic flow models,(More)
Adverse weather conditions have been shown to have a substantial impact on traffic flow operations following substantial adaptation effects in driving behavior. In quantifying these effects psycho-spacing models may be used. In this contribution it was examined to what extend adverse weather conditions influence the position of action points in the relative(More)
This paper addresses predicting the impact of access gates on pedestrian flow operations in terms of levels-of-service, congestion levels, average walking times, delays incurred at the gates, etc. To tackle the problem at hand, pedestrian traffic operations for different station design alternatives are predicted using the microscopic pedestrian flow model(More)
