Traffic Simulation Modelling of Driver Assistance Systems

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are being offered more and more in new vehicles. ADAS can include adaptive cruise control, intelligent speed adaptation, lane departure warnings, driver vigilance monitoring, and parking aids. This article provides a description of the use of microscopic traffic simulation for the analysis and evaluation of the impact of driver assistance systems. The authors discuss studies of ADAS, including an overtaking (passing) assistant and adaptive cruise control. They stress that, in order to exploit the full potential of these systems, it is necessary to estimate the systems’ future impact already at early stages of the system development process. The authors conclude that simulation-based road safety and environmental impact analyses can be conducted using performance indicators derived from vehicle trajectories of the simulation. However, relationships between simulation-based indicators and effects in real traffic have not yet been established in many cases.
