Title: Occupancy time-based passenger car equivalents at unsignalized intersections in India
Authors: Mohan M.

Published in: Current Science
Abstract: In developing countries, one of the vital steps involved in analysing the capacity of any transportation facility is the estimation of passenger car equivalents (PCEs) for different types of vehicles to convert the heterogeneous traffic stream into an equivalent stream of passenger cars. This study proposes occupancy time method for the estimation of PCEs for different types of vehicles generally observed at unsignalized intersections in India. PCEs for vehicles executing different movements at unsignalized intersections have been estimated in this study and the dynamic nature of PCEs has also been explored. However, PCEs were found to be statistically similar across different movements and across intersections of different geometry. © 2018 Current Science Association, Bengaluru.
