Microscopic Simulation of Overtaking in Opposing Traffic

This paper presented a model to simulate overtaking in the opposing lane. The paper focused on a driver behavior model by introducing a method for overtaking in the opposing lane. The paper described the model and demonstrated the applicability by running several simulations with different infrastructure elements. The model included rules for aborting a takeover and also allowed for overtaking of platoons. The model also applied the potential impact of connected vehicles on overtaking behavior.
