Abstract:

In this paper we describe a highway traffic simulator focused on the safety of lane changes. The simulator models in detail the situational awareness and behavior of the driver, including the visibility, windows, mirrors and blind spots of the vehicle, as well as the times of checking the mirrors and initiating a lane change. Using this simulator, we perform a study estimating the time to change a lane and the frequency of side-sweep accidents in various conditions such as traffic density and relative velocity of lanes. Some of the experimental results closely match the real-world observations of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
