VEGAS - Quality assessment of traffic flow for automated driving on motorway

Project: Research project

Project Details


VEGAS looks at the capacity impact on the ASFINAG motorway network generated by automated driving for SAE-levels 2-4. Personal transport by cars and freight transport by trucks are considered.The following questions will be adressed for different market penetration and SAE level:
- Change in travel speeds
- Change of network density and link capacity
- Adaption between automated and conventional vehicles especially in incident cases such
as congestion and accident
- Impact of automated driving on capacity of interchanges and entries with subordinate atgrade
- macroscopic evaluation of shorter breaks at rest-areas
