Abstract
This paper presents the conceptual structure of a novel microscopic traffic flow behavior simulation model for motorcycle traffic based on a mobility force structure, called mobility force car-following model. The mobility force is defined as the interactive force of motorcycle by surrounding vehicles and environment of lane layout. The kinetic behavior of the motorcycle will be induced and constrained by the force created due to the spaces surrounding. The concept is to describe the driving behavior using a series of forces of the attraction and repulsion related to the vehicle and spaces surrounding in front of the motorcycle. The model can describe both of the lateral motion and longitudinal motion in views to the motorcycle driving feature. Through a series of calibration for the parameters of the model, the regression statistical significance and the validation of the model output using the field survey data, the results illustrated the enough accuracy of the result of model output. The model is then verified to be suitable to describe the real motorcycle driving behavior preliminarily.
