Traffic modelling

Simulation of traffic flows in order to predict changes to congestion and fuel consumption

Models for simulation of both dual- and single-carriageway traffic on a microscopic (vehicle-by-vehicle) basis have been developed, including lane changing and overtaking behaviour. 

Vehicle trajectories from simulation can then be passed as drive cycles to an energy or fuel consumption model to investigate the consumption of individual vehicles, across a class of vehicle or across the whole fleet of vehicles.

Investigations to date have included the effects on increasing heavy vehicle size on motorway traffic and the effect of increasing single-carriageway speed limits for heavy vehicles.
