FORMULATING A MODEL OF MULTILANE TRAFFIC FLOW

A FORMULATION OF A MODEL OF MULTILANE TRAFFIC USING MARKOV RENEWAL THEORY IS PRESENTED. THE MODEL CONSIDERS THE MOVEMENTS OF INDIVIDUAL VEHICLES WITHIN A GIVEN TRAFFIC ENVIRONMENT THAT IS DESCRIBED BY A BIVARIATE PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTION OF PLATOON LENGTHS AND SPEEDS. OUTPUTS OF THE MODEL WILL NOT INCLUDE AVERAGE VEHICLE SPEED, VEHICLE DELAY, AND LANE-CHANGING INTENSITIES AND PATTERNS. THE BASIC FRAMEWORK PRESENTED WILL ACCEPT ANY SETS OF VEHICLE BEHAVIORAL RULES AND IS VALID FOR ANY NUMBER OF LANES. /AUTHOR/
