Micro-scale traffic simulator for analyzing mutual interference between personal mobility vehicles and traffic flow

The personal mobility vehicle (PMV) described in this paper has typical biomimetic characteristics, which incline the vehicle body inside a curve. Because the behavior of this vehicle is similar to that of a two-wheeled vehicle, it is necessary to examine the PMV and the potential for interference with other vehicles in the midst of ordinary road traffic. Therefore, we simulated the vehicle dynamics (including a driver model and a road transportation system) and analyzed the results to ensure the PMV's compatibility with micro-scale traffic flow.
