    • Estimating the Social Gap With a Game Theory Model of Lane Changing 

      Ji, Ang; Levinson, David M.
      Published 2020-05-01
      Changing lanes is a commonly-used technique for drivers to either overtake slow-moving cars or enter/exit highway ramps. Optional lane changes may save drivers travel time but increase the risk of collision with others. ...

    • Measuring full cost accessibility by auto 

      Cui, Mengying; Levinson, David M.
      Published 2019-01-01
      Traditionally accessibility has been analyzed from the perspective of the mean or expected travel time, which fails to capture the full cost, especially the external cost, of travel. The full cost accessibility (FCA) ...
