Abstract:Field data is collected and analyzed from two highway-rail intersections. Vehicular speed profiles are examined in the approach zone, stopping distance zone, and the track zone for single vehicles as well as platoons of vehicles. A simulation model incorporating the field data, determination of a dynamic dilemma zone, and algorithms to determine gate operation times is developed and validated. The results from this approach yield four quadrant gate operation parameters applicable to higher traffic volume conditions where four quadrant gate design criteria have not been considered.
