Evaluation of following headway behaviour in mixed traffic condition in north east part of India. (2013)
Conference Proceeding
Kumar, R., & Parida, P. (2013). Evaluation of following headway behaviour in mixed traffic condition in north east part of India. In A. Ahmed (Ed.), 2013 World Sustainable Development Outlook: Sustainable Development - New Multi-Disciplinary Approaches and Methodologies (365-390)

Purpose: Both a lack of understanding of the issues for following headway behaviour of the driver and a lack of sufficient data in different traffic condition have been major reasons to attempt this research study. This paper attempts to address hypo... Read More about Evaluation of following headway behaviour in mixed traffic condition in north east part of India..
