This report defines the problem of lane change crashes in the United States (U.S.) based on data from the 1999 National Automotive Sampling System/General Estimates System (GES) crash database of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The results from this analysis provide a basis for related future research in the U.S. Department of Transportation's Intelligent Vehicle Initiative. Lane change crashes are defined in this report as two-vehicle crashes that occur when one vehicle… Expand
An evaluation of the real-world safety effect of a lane change driver support system and characteristics of lane change crashes based on insurance claims data
TLDR
The insurance data analyzed provided useful information about real-world lane change crash characteristics by covering collisions in all crash severities and thus revealed information beyond what is available in, for example, data sets of police-reported crashes. Expand
Investigating Improper Lane Changes: Driver Performance Contributing to Lane Change Near-Crashes
We investigated the contributing factors that led to the lane change near-crashes recorded in the 100-Car Naturalistic Driving Study using a case-crossover experimental design. Drivers’ visualExpand
Safety Evaluation of Lane Change Collision Avoidance Systems Using the National Advanced Driving Simulator
This paper reports on the status of the evaluation of several lane change collision avoidance system (CAS) types using the National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS). The goal of this evaluation isExpand
Performance of Drivers in Two Age Ranges Using Lane Change Collision Avoidance Systems inthe National Advanced Driving Simulator
Lane change collision avoidance systems (CAS) are designed to prevent crashes in lane change maneuvers by alerting the driver to hazards in the adjacent lanes of traffic. These systems detectExpand
Minimizing the Disruption of Traffic Flow of Automated Vehicles During Lane Changes
TLDR
An algorithm to minimize the disruption of traffic flow by optimizing for the number of safe lane changes, thereby increasing throughput and reducing congestion is presented. Expand
Factors affecting lane change crashes
Abstract This study aims to investigate the contributing factors affecting the occurrence of crashes while lane-changing maneuvers of drivers. Two different data sets were used from the same drivers'Expand
Categorization of the lane change decision process on freeways
Abstract Traffic operations for new road layouts are often simulated using microscopic traffic simulation packages. These traffic simulation packages usually simulate traffic on freeways by aExpand
Gap Acceptance During Lane Changes by Large-Truck Drivers—An Image-Based Analysis
TLDR
An analysis of rearward gap acceptance characteristics of drivers of large trucks in highway lane change scenarios showed directional discrepancies, i.e., in left lane changes, large trucks are often slower than other vehicles in the target lane, whereas they are usually faster in right lane changes. Expand
Analysis of traffic flow with micro-cars with respect to safety and environmental impact
Abstract This study analyzes the characteristics of traffic flow in the presence of micro-cars in a vehicle mix. A two-lane multi-cell traffic cellular automaton (TCA) model is formulated to simulateExpand
Cost and benefit estimates of partially-automated vehicle collision avoidance technologies.
TLDR
The technologies explored in this paper represent an early form of vehicle automation and a positive net benefit suggests the fleet-wide adoption of these technologies would be beneficial from an economic and social perspective. Expand
