The vast majority of urban traffic intersections are priority-based unsignalised intersections, in which major roads have priority over minor roads. Performance analysis of this type of intersection is traditionally based on gap acceptance models, which have developed from classical queueing models. These models are based on the assumption that the crossing decision of a driver on the minor road is based on the gap between two successive vehicles on the major road. Absihek uses this model to analyse different types of traffic situations and participants.
