This study's focus is on modeling vehicle acceleration-deceleration behavior during freeway and ramp maneuvers in congested traffic. Presented are methodologies for collecting field data, analyzing freeway merging behavior data and developing and calibrating ramp vehicle accelerating models. Substantial data were collected using videotape and image processing techniques. The entrance ramps in the Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway were used for comprehensive traffic surveys. The paper presents a…

Driver behavior at freeway-ramp merging areas based on instrumented vehicle observations

Abstract Driver behavior is an important factor that affects traffic operations and accounts to a large degree for the observed variability in roadway performance. Although various simulation and

Modeling Driver Behavior at Freeway–Ramp Merges

TLDR
A ramp-merging model is developed that considered the merging process as perceived by drivers and the contribution of individual drivers’ merging behavior to the breakdown event to provide insight into the triggers of the breakdown of freeway flow.

Modeling Vehicle Interactions during Merge in Congested Weaving Section of Freeway Ramp

One major limitation of existing microscopic traffic simulation models is the lack of data about vehicle interactions during the lane-changing process in congested merging areas. The interactions
