Description

The accelpass function estimates the relative locations of two vehicles where one passes the other.

Usage

accelpass(tend, umn, usd, xstart, xfunnel, leff, lane, step)

Arguments

tend

end time for a simulation run, a number

umn

start speed (mph) for vehicle in lane 1, a number

usd

speed volatility for umn, a number

xstart

start location for vehicle in lane 1 (feet), a number

xfunnel

upstream location where the lane drop starts (feet), a number

leff

effective vehicle length(feet), a number

lane

number, a number

step

size in seconds, a number

Value

accelpass uses a stochastic model to show the locations of vehicle accelerating to pass another vehicle traveling side-by-side at the speed.

Examples

accelpass(30, 41, 11, -1000, -500, 14, 1, 2)
