Abstract

This paper presents a concept of Dynamic passenger car unit, appropriate for the mixed traffic on Indian roads, and shows that the PCU factor for different types of vehicles is not a static factor as is generally assumed. Speed and Volume data are collected at two urban roads of Vadodara city by video camera technique on midblock section during morning and evening peak hour. Dynamic PCUs are estimated based on speed and size of vehicle type in the traffic stream with respect to standard car. The result show that PCU value for different types of vehicles varies with traffic volume and composition on both the roads.

Key Words

Passenger car unit, Traffic volume, Mixed Traffic, Speed
