Drivers’ Interactions with Advanced Vehicles in Various Traffic Mixes and Flows (autonomous and connected vehicles (ACVs) electric vehicles (EVs), V2X, trucks, bicycles, and pedestrians) – Phase I: Driver Behavior Study and Parameter Estimation

Since there are not enough studies on autonomous and connected vehicle (ACV) behaviors in a roadway network, there is no clear and established description of ACV and V2X behavior to be simulated in a traffic simulator. Besides, no study/practice has developed a fully multimodal (Complete Streets-type) traffic simulation including ACVs, V2Xs, and EVs. Furthermore, drivers’ behavior in different penetrations of traffic mixtures has not been investigated in the literature. This research will investigate behaviors of ACVs and V2Xs in the road network, and parameters will be estimated using the literature and driving simulator. The parameters for each new vehicle type will be included in the traffic simulation.
