  1. 1. Semester : BE - 5th Civil-A Subject : Highway Engineering Code : 2150601 Presentation On : Traffic Engineering Prepared by : Eddy Ankit Gangani eddygangani@gmail.com
  2. 2.  What isTraffic Engineering ?  Scope of traffic Engineering  Traffic System Components  Traffic Characteristics – Road User Characteristics Vehicular Characteristics Road Characteristics
  3. 3.  Traffic Engineering : It is very important that traffic flow on roads should be efficient-safe-rapid.  Traffic Engineering is the branch which deals with science of measuring traffic ,Designing & Operating system to achieve Safe& efficient movement of persons as well as goods.
  4. 4.  TrafficCharacteristics  Traffic studies & analysis  Traffic operation – control  Planning & Analysis  Geometric Design  Administration & Management
  5. 5.  Road users-drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and passengers  Vehicles  Streets and highways  Traffic control devices  The general environment
  6. 6. Traffic Characteristics Road User Characteristics Vehicular Characteristics Permanent- Vision,Hearing,Re action time Temporary- Fatigue,Alchohol,Illn ess,Drugs Traffic Stream Facilities Atmosphere Locality Physical Mental Psychological Environmental Attentiveness Fear Anger Superposition Knowledge Skill Experience Intelligence Literacy
  7. 7.  Physiological–Measurable and UsuallyQuantifiable  Psychological–Much more difficult to measure and quantify  • Psychological : Desired speeds Desired safety distances  • Physiological : Perception-Reaction time Visual factors Hearing  The traffic engineer must deal with elderly drivers as well as 18-year-olds, aggressive drivers and timid drivers, and drivers subject to myriad distractions both inside and outside their vehicles.
  8. 8.  Field ofVision :The most important characteristic of drivers is their ability to see!  Traffic Signs: Location, Height, Shapes, Colors  The peripheral vision field narrows, as speed increases, to as little as 100° at 20 mi/h and to 40° at 60 mi/h.
  9. 9.  Perception-ReactionTime : The second critical driver characteristic is perception-reaction time (PRT).  Detection. In this phase, an object or condition of concern enters the driver’s field of vision, and the driver becomes consciously aware that something requiring a response is present.(Perception=VisionAwareness)  Identification. In this phase, the driver acquires sufficient information concerning the object or condition to allow the consideration of an appropriate response.(Intellection- Interpretation)  Decision.Once identification of the object or condition is sufficiently completed, the driver must analyze the information and make a decision about how to respond.  Response. After a decision has been reached, the response is now physically implemented by the driver.(Volition= physical response)  d = 0.278 S.t
