The focus of this research effort is the study of driver behavior in the presence of real-time traffic condition information. The methodology adapted for this research involves three parts: development of a theoretical model for driver behavior under Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS), interactive simulation experiments, data analysis and behavioral modeling. FASTCARS, an interactive computer-based simulator that has been developed for in-laboratory experimentation to gather data for estimating and calibrating predictive models of driver behavior under conditions of real-time information, is used in the project.
