Webinar – Driver Behavior and Traffic Operations with Automated Vehicles

December 2, 2020 15.30 - 17.40 h

On 3 December 2020, TRAIL PhD researcher Lin Xiao will defend her PhD thesis entitled Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control Vehicles on Highways: Modelling and Traffic Flow Characteristics at Delft University of Technology. The defence is public, and you are cordially invited to join.

On the occasion of this public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on ”Driver Behavior and Traffic Operations with Automated Vehicles”. Microscopic driver-vehicle behaviors are crucial in determining macroscopic flow characteristics and traffic safety impact. Partially automated driving system introduces complex driver-vehicle interactions and changes the way we operate our vehicles today. This has paramount implications for traffic operations. This seminar will discuss recent advances in understanding and modelling driver-vehicle behavior under partial automation and the connection between microscopic driver-vehicle dynamic and macroscopic traffic flow dynamics.
