Abstract:This paper presents a model of a behavior to merge onto an interstate for an autonomous vehicle. This autonomous vehicle exists in a virtual environment of a microscopic traffic simulation system. The merge behavior model constitutes a part of a complete set of behaviors that represent the overall activities exhibited by a realistic and reactive vehicle in a driving simulation virtual environment. The merge behavior is an interesting behavior since the autonomous vehicle has to satisfy multiple (conflicting) conditions in order to perform a successful merge into a congested interstate. This paper presents a brief description of the overall vehicle behavior model and then describes the merge behavior model in detail.
