Vehicle automation is developing rapidly, nevertheless a lot of wor k is still lacking, as we are not yet at a point where vehicles are able to drive themselves on a road without a human behind the wheel. One of the possibilities of automation is its use as public transport. In theWEpods project, led byT U Delft, we are looking at the technology...

Sag vertical curves (sags) are roadway sections along which the gradient increases gradually in the direction of traffic. Empirical observations show that, on freeways, traffic congestion often occurs at sags; actually, in some countries (e.g., Japan), sags are one of the most common types of freeway bottleneck. This thesis is the outcome of a...

n this paper, we present a method to estimate CO2 reduction potential by increasing the truck size. Trucks are apparently the most preferred freight transport option for most shippers. Therefore, increasing the truck size may be a realizable and practical strategy, except when logistics companies (truck owners) tailor their truck sizes to...

In this paper, we demonstrate how to calculate the passenger impacts of service unreliability. We show that passengers are affected by longer waiting times and the distribution of travel times. We present a framework to calculate these effects and to express them in monetary values. In the Netherlands and many other countries, service...

Automated driving technology is emerging. Yet, less is known about when automated vehicles will hit the market, how penetration rates will evolve and to what extent this new transportation technology will affect transportation demand and planning. This study identified through scenario analysis plausible future development paths of automated...

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...

Passing maneuvers allow faster drivers to continue driving at their own desired speeds without being delayed behind an impeding vehicle. On two lane rural roads, this requires from the passing driver to occupy the opposing lane. This has tremendous implications on safety and operation of two-lane roads. In the literature, several studies...

Overtaking on two-lane roads is a complex driving maneuver. Drivers who desire to overtake a lead vehicle need to evaluate the available gaps in the opposite direction and accept a sufficient gap to successfully complete the overtaking maneuver. However, often drivers realize that the gap they accepted is shorter than what they actually need to...

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

Developing practicable and efficient real-time signal control strategies for urban road networks is a major challenge with significant scientific and practical relevance. For the sake of practical feasibility, many urban traffic control strategies are based on simplified models. In this way, a trade-off can be made between controller accuracy,...

Vrijwel alle gemeenten en regio’s gebruiken strategische verkeersmodellen om hun mobiliteitsbeleid vorm te geven. Deze modellen, zelfs de multimodale, houden echter onvoldoende rekening met fiets- en voetgangersstromen. Vooral nu het bereikbaarheidsbelang van fietsen steeds groter wordt, is dat een vervelend probleem. Hoog tijd dus om werk te...

Afgelopen CVS congressen is er veel gesproken over nieuwe databronnen die helpen bij de uitdagingen in de OV wereld. De OV chipkaart is één van de bronnen, waarmee we het OV beter en efficiënter kunnen maken. Maar tot nog toe gebruikten we deze data vooral om binnen de lijntjes te kleuren: de data als vervanging van eerdere handmatig verkregen...

Travel behaviour models typically rely on data afflicted by errors, in perception (e.g., over/under-estimation by traveller) and measurement (e.g., software or researcher imputation error). Such errors are shown to have a relevant impact on model outputs. So far a comprehensive framework to deal with different types of biases related to travel...
