A study on variations of car-following behavior at sag sections and the impact of introducing ACC system

Abstract

A sag section is a road segment on an expressway in which the vertical slope increases at a small but constant rate. Sag sections are the main traffic bottlenecks on Japanese expressways. Variations in individual car-following... [ view full abstract ]
