In the vicinity of ramps, drivers make route choices, change lanes and in most cases also adjust their speeds. This can trigger anticipatory behaviour by the surrounding vehicles, which are also reflected in lane changes and/or changes in speed. This phenomenon is called turbulence and is widely recognised by the scientific literature and...

Turbulence in traffic is a commonly known phenomenon, but the exact characteristics of this phenomenon are not yet clear. Turbulence reflects individual changes in speed, headways, and lanes in the traffic stream. The current freeway design guidelines prescribe measures for handling turbulence, such as sufficient ramp spacing and spacing...

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and automated vehicles can contribute to reduce traffic congestion and accidents. Recently, an on-road study has shown that drivers may prefer to deactivate full-range ACC when closing in on a slower leader and to overrule it by pressing the gas pedal a few seconds after the activation of the system. Notwithstanding...

Automated vehicles and driving assistance systems such as adaptive cruise control (ACC) are expected to reduce traffic congestion, accidents, and levels of emissions. Field operational tests have found that drivers may prefer to deactivate ACC in dense traffic flow conditions and before changing lanes. Despite the potential effects of these...

Weaving is defined as the crossing of two streams travelling in the same direction along a significant section of the road without the assistance of traffic control devices. Merging and diverging vehicles need to make one or more lane-changes in a limited space and time, determined by the weaving section length. This situation creates intensive...

Nederlandse wegontwerpers en veiligheidsexperts zoeken naar meer kwantitatieve methodes om de veiligheid van een (voorgenomen) weefvak te bepalen dan de traditionele methodes die gebruik maken van expert judgement en ongevalsregistraties. Een alternatieve methode is om de veiligheid te bepalen met behulp van VISSIM micro-simulatiemodellen in...

Dutch road designers and safety experts are searching for more quantitative methods to evaluate the safety of a (proposed) weaving section than the traditional methods of expert judgement and use of accident records. An alternative would be to determine safety using VISSIM micro-simulation models in combination with the Surrogate Safety...

Driving assistance systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and automated vehicles can contribute to mitigate traffic congestion, accidents, and levels of emissions. Automated vehicles may increase roadway capacity, improve traffic flow stability, and speed up the outflow from a queue (1). The functionalities of automated systems have been...
