AUTOMATED HIGHWAY SYSTEM MERGING CONTROL. PART II, MODEL DEVELOPMENT

This paper addresses the issue of Automated Highway System (AHS) interfaces with other transportation facilities. AHS interfaces may cause problems, due to either AHS interactions with conventional systems or internal limitations from AHS merging capabilities. The current macroscopic techniques assume parameters that are not applicable to an AHS, and no detailed AHS merging models have been developed and validated. This paper addresses the AHS to conventional roadway interface problem by presenting a microscopic simulation model for one scenario of the automated merging maneuver
