Summary:
The objective of this study was to develop a suitable model for measuring passing sight distance on two-lane, two-way highways using Global Positioning System (GPS) data and identify no passing zones. The model was converted into a computer algorithm and coded in Matlab version 6.5 and requires database toolbox. The algorithm has been tested on 10 highway segments and the results obtained are in agreement with the  Read more...

Abstract:

The objective of this study was to develop a suitable model for measuring passing sight distance on two-lane, two-way highways using Global Positioning System (GPS) data and identify no passing zones. The model was converted into a computer algorithm and coded in Matlab version 6.5 and requires database toolbox. The algorithm has been tested on 10 highway segments and the results obtained are in agreement with the existing conditions.
