Modeling Naturalistic Driving Environment with High-Resolution Trajectory Data

In this project, the team will develop a methodological framework for modeling the high-fidelity naturalistic driving environment (NDE) with high-resolution trajectory data. Different from traditional NDE models that mainly match the moments of macroscopic traffic behaviors, the high-fidelity NDE models will match the distributions of microscopic driving behaviors, which are critical for safety-critical applications such as autonomous vehicle testing and training. The large-scale high-resolution data that is being collected by roadside sensors will be leveraged. The developed NDE models will be implemented at the SAFE-TEST toolbox for the safety assessment of autonomous vehicles at the American Center for Mobility, which will significantly expand the toolbox into the complex urban driving environment. Both the high-resolution data collection system and SAFE-TEST toolbox were developed by the PI research team with previous CCAT and Mcity sponsored projects.
