Improving the Reliability of Heavy Vehicle Parameters to Support More Accurate Traffic Modelling in Australia and New Zealand

December 9, 2019

This webinar providesĀ an overview of ways to more accurately model heavy vehicle movements during interrupted traffic flows in Australia and New Zealand.

It covers:

  • background and results of the Austroads project
  • heavy vehicle characteristics relevant to intersection capacity such as length and width, clearance space, acceleration and deceleration
  • heavy vehicle parameter development for traffic modelling software - SIDRA, LINSIG, VISSIM and AIMSUN, based on video survey and calibration.

The webinar presented on 9 December 2019 by Dr Young Li and TK Kim.
