Abstract:INTELSIM model was also utilized to study traffic flow characteristics of a mix of driver controlled (DC) and AICC vehicles as well as all AICC vehicles. INTELSIM algorithm provided stability in AICC platoons and performed well in a variety of traffic situations including stop-and-go conditions. AICC vehicles can provide volumes of up to 7400, 5200 and 3100 veh/hr at separation headways of 0.3, 0.5 and 1 sec, respectively, at speeds of 90 ft/sec. These volumes are much greater than those obtained by DC cars. The traffic density and volumes of traffic mixed with AICC and DC vehicles were also examined. Macroscopic traffic flow equations to represent AICC vehicular traffic were found.
