OBJECTIVES AND BENCHMARKS FOR KINETIC THEORIES OF VEHICULAR TRAFFIC

Possible objectives and applications for kinetic theories of vehicular traffic are considered. Among these is the traditional application to the development of continuum models, with the resulting microscopically based coefficients. However, the focus is upon direct applications of the kinetic theory (e.g., the kinetic distribution function). It is concluded that the primary applications are likely to be found among situations in which variability between instances is an important consideration (e.g., travel times, or driving cycles).
