Traffic Engineering Studies Using a Driving Simulator - Year 2

The primary objective of this project was to demonstrate the feasibility of using the University of Central Florida's interactive driving simulator to perform traffic engineering studies. Specifically, several scenarios involving the quality of service at a signalized intersection were investigated. This report describes the scenarios, the experiments conducted, the data collected, and some analysis of results. Findings and conclusions are directed more at the utility and practicality of using the driving simulator as a learning tool in helping to acquire a solid understanding of traffic operations. A follow-up study using the simulator is needed to explore geometric design alternatives and their effect on the quality of service.
