MODELING THE DRIVER FOR TRAFFIC FLOW SIMULATION

This research explored an alternative method of formulating driving models. It started from a psychological basis and used fuzzy logic. Fuzzy logic provided a systematic way of handling imprecision, and its constructs allowed a more intuitive model of driving, one more closely resembling the thinking and acting patterns of humans. A new fuzzy logic driver model was developed. Its structure was based on a general psychological model of human information processing. It was designed so it could be programmed with specific driving behavior by an end user. To demonstrate and validate it, the model was programmed for two-lane rural highway driving and used in simulations of these facilities. The result of the work was a computer based road simulation toolbox containing the new fuzzy logic driver model. Current work is aimed at conversion of the program to a Windows format.
