Abstract

This chapter summarizes fundamental models for microscopic simulation (such as vehicle generation model and car-following model) and other critical models (such as lane-choice model, lane-changing model, and route-choice model). Most of the critical models introduced in this chapter reflect the latest research results by the author. The primary purpose of this chapter is to provide fundamentals for better understanding of the travel behaviors that are modeled for traffic simulations. To facilitate the applications of traffic simulation models, several key elements for applying state-of-the-art computer traffic simulation tools are summarized. They include the procedure for building models, model calibration and validation. Further more, techniques for collecting vehicle trajectory data, critical elements used for model calibration and validation, are also introduced.
