Abstract

A technique is developed for synthesising a statistically representative driving cycle for an urban area based on dynamic driving data collected by the chase car technique. The simulation procedure based on a "Knight's Tour" concept relies on an understanding of the dynamics of urban driving, in particular the observed tendency to maintain constant acceleration and deceleration rates. The final synthesised cycle is a representative real driving trace although the analysis raises questions about the level of resolution currently required for driving cycle work.
