Connected Autonomous Vehicles on a Mixed Traffic Highway—Speed Harmonization, Capacity Analysis, and Lane Management
Description Connected autonomous vehicles (CAV) technologies will be in the market in the near future. This requires that transportation systems are ready to operate in a mixed traffic environment where a portion of vehicles are CAVs and the remaining are human-driven vehicles. This presentation includes two topics. First, a CAV-based microscopic trajectory-smoothing concept is proposed to harmonize traffic and improve mobility and environmental impacts. The proposed algorithm can be used to prevent or mitigate traffic speed drops near highway bottlenecks. The second topic investigates how different features of CAVs and corresponding lane management policies can improve throughput capacity of mixed traffic from a macroscopic perspective. An analytical model is proposed to quantify mixed traffic highway capacity. The proposed capacity analysis is then extended to a managed lane model to determine the optimal number of lanes to be allocated to CAVs. Financially, numerical examples are presented to investigate three different CAV technology scenarios: neutral, conservative, and aggressive CAV headway settings.

Roundabout Design Workshop
Description

There is increasing interest in the modern roundabout as an intersection design form. Entry and circulating speeds are controlled by the geometric features of the roundabout, including the size of the central island and outer diameter of the circulating roadway, entry and exit radii and the length and shape of splitter islands. All vehicles enter the roundabout under yield control, minimizing intersection delay. Right-angle and left-turn crashes are essentially eliminated, reducing the average severity of intersection crashes. But these safety and efficiency advantages may not be realized if the roundabout is not properly designed or if traffic control devices are not properly applied.

The workshop emphasizes criteria for selection of roundabouts as an intersection form, geometric design practices and procedures and design of traffic control devices.

Congestion Management Process
Description A congestion management process (CMP) is a systematic and regionally-accepted approach for managing congestion that provides accurate, up-to-date information on transportation system performance and assesses alternative strategies for congestion management that meet State and local needs. A CMP is required in metropolitan areas with population exceeding 200,000, known as Transportation Management Areas (TMAs). Federal requirements state that in all TMAs, the CMP shall be developed and implemented as an integrated part of the metropolitan transportation planning process; however, Federal regulations are not prescriptive regarding the methods and approaches that must be used to implement a CMP.
The CMP and planning for operations are frequently combined in metropolitan regions. The strategies that come from a CMP are often M&O strategies. The CMP uses an objectives-driven, performance-based approach to planning for congestion management. Through the use of congestion management objectives and performance measures, the CMP provides a mechanism for ensuring that investment decisions are made with a clear focus on desired outcomes. This approach involves screening strategies using objective criteria and relying on system performance data, analysis, and evaluation.

TRB’s SHRP 2 Tuesdays Webinar: Roadway Information Data from the SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study (S04A and S04B)
Description

The RID was populated with roadway and other contextual information from the six field study sites in the SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS). The NDS gathered real-time, in-vehicle data from 3,147 participants in 6 sites across the United States who made 5.4 million trips covering almost 50 million miles. The RID includes new roadway data collected and quality assured by SHRP 2. It also contains existing data - such as roadway inventories, crash histories, traffic, weather, work zones, 511 information, and safety enforcement laws - acquired from government, public, and private sources.


This geographic information system (GIS) database, which will be linked to the NDS database, will make it possible to relate driver behavior to characteristics of the roadway. Learning more about this relationship is critical to understanding how to diminish crash risk in the roadway design process.

Analysis and Performance Measurement
Description Analysis and performance measurement are integral to planning for operations. They are central to the success of an objectives-driven, performance-based approach and are often the most resource-intensive aspect to planning for operations in terms of data, staff expertise, and simulation tools and models. Analysis and performance measurement are the key activities in two major elements of the planning for operations approach: 1) the systematic process to develop and select M&O strategies to meet objectives and 2) system performance monitoring and evaluation. Performance measures and analysis also play an important role in the development of operations objectives. Operations data serves as the foundation for these activities.
Key topics of analysis and performance measurement are:
  • Analysis and Simulation Tools
  • Benefit-Cost Analysis
  • Performance Measures and System Monitoring
  • Operations Data for Planning
