Modeling Analysis for IVHS Architecture Evaluation

For the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) systems architecture study, proposed architectures will be evaluated against a defined criteria set. A subset of these criteria will be evaluated quantitatively through modeling. In order to perform this quantitative analysis, a proposed physical architecture will be developed into an evaluatory design for a common scenario, or geographic region. This paper outlines a plan for analyzing the evaluatory design through traffic and communication simulation. Modeling requirements and a survey of candidate traffic and communications simulations are presented, followed by a discussion of leading candidates and a recommendation for model selection.
