Glossary

Air traffic flow

Air traffic flow represents the distribution of air traffic over a region of space. Air traffic is undergoing major changes both in developed and developing countries. The demand for air traffic depends on population growth and other economic factors. Air traffic in the United States is expected to grow to 2 or 3 times the baseline levels of traffic in the next few decades. An understanding of the characteristics of the baseline and future flows is essential to design a good traffic flow management strategy.

Autonomous driving

An autonomous driving vehicle is a self-driving vehicle that can move without a driver. Autonomous driving is realized through the use of an automated system in a vehicle: The automated system has control over the vehicle in traffic flow. Autonomous driving vehicle is also called self-driving, automated driving, or automatic driving vehicle.

Autonomous driving in framework of three-phase traffic theory

An autonomous driving in the...
