Investigating Mixed Logit Analysis of Critical Headways at a Single-Lane Instrumented Roundabout

Alex Hainen

Journal of the Transportation Research Forum, 2016, vol. 55, issue 3

Abstract: This paper examines 29,403 entering vehicles that rejected two or more headways for a total of 69,123 rejected headways. A detailed series of temporal parameters was established and used to estimate a mixed binary logit model and understand rejection/acceptance decisions. This technique allows for the parameter estimates to vary across the population and across the set of decisions that drivers made and suggests that drivers may modify their critical headway as they wait at the yield bar. The results from this paper indicate that future consideration of capacity using a dynamic critical headway could be useful in modeling and capacity estimation.
