CAPACITY ANALYSIS OF A SEMI-AUTOMATED HIGHWAY

This paper analyzes the gains in capacity that can be achieved through highway automation. Fundamental theories of traffic flow and vehicle motion are applied to a "multi-lane semi-automated" highway where one or more automated lanes co-exist with one or more non-automated lanes. Dynamics of vehicle movements are simulated to assess capacity benefits that can be accrued under various speed scenarios on a semi-automated highway.
