Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics 2013, Volume 2

This issue contains 14 papers concerned with traffic flow theory and characteristics. Specific topics addressed include: cooperative highway traffic; the speed synchronization process of merging vehicles from the entrance ramp; the estimation of arterial travel time from automatic number plate recognition data; data-fitted first-order traffic models and their second-order generalizations; hysteresis and capacity drop phenomena in freeway networks; travel time reliability; and speed harmonization. Other topics addressed in this issue include: connecting networkwide travel time reliability and the network fundamental diagram of traffic flow; the calibration of traffic flow models under adverse weather; a new consistency index based on inertial operating speed; validation of a macroscopic lane-changing model; microscopic traffic flow properties in emergency situations; a generalized macroscopic fundamental diagram for urban freeways; and the estimation of the real-time traffic state along signalized arterial corridors.
