The IHE Middle East Branch would like to invite you to their online technical CPD webinar on Tuesday 6th February 2024.

Details

This presentation will provide an overview of the changes in the Highway Capacity Manual 7th Edition, published in 2022. For the first time, the HCM will now present methods to evaluate planning-level effects of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) in the capacity of freeways, signalized intersections, and roundabouts. This feature provides agencies with a standardised method to develop their long-range transportation plans to account for the deployment of CAVs in the next decades.

The HCM 7th Edition also includes the following methodological updates:

  • A new methodology to analyse Two-Lane Highways
  • A new methodology to evaluate corridors with freeways and urban street elements, including interactions between different facilities such as ramp queue spillback
  • An upgraded methodology to determine Pedestrian Level of Service for signalized intersections, two-way stop-controlled intersections, and urban street segments
  • Methodological changes to the two-way stop-controlled intersections to provide a more accurate LOS for minor street approaches.

Presenter – Fabio Sasahara PhD PMP, Associate Director, McTrans Center, University of Florida
