ADAPTIVE CONTROLLERS FOR VEHICLE VELOCITY CONTROL FOR MICROSCOPIC TRAFFIC SIMULATION MODELS

This paper provides a description of a hybrid follow controller designed to automatically regulate the speed of controlled vehicles in car-following situations within a virtual environment of a microscopic traffic simulation system. In prior follow type algorithms the modeling goal was the correlation of aggregate traffic behavior; however, the main aim of this model is to appear realistic when viewed by a human participant driving a vehicle within the virtual environment of a driving simulator. The overall simulation system is briefly described along with specific problems that were addressed in this particular application. Examples of the model's performance are given for typical driving situations.
