Abstract
Genetic algorithm is used to calibrate four driving behavior parameters and a set of calibration procedure is put forward based on VISSIM. Using the approach maximum queue length and travel time as the evaluation indexes and applying the calibration method to a single signalized intersection of Yizhuang Zone in Beijing, which validates the effectiveness and practicability of the genetic algorithm in VISSIM parameter calibration.
