Toll plaza operations assessment using a specific micro simulation driver's behavior model

This paper presents the specificities of the Japanese tollways and in particular the usage of electronic toll collection (ETC) systems. In order to anticipate the increase of ETC users, future scenario of toll plaza layout (gates type and position) has to be evaluated. A microsimulation tool was used to assess performances and safety aspects. In order to do it properly, a gate selection model was developed, calibrated and implemented. For the covering abstract see ITRD E140665.
