This paper reports on nonintrusive methods for characterizing the longitudinal performance of vehicles equipped with adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems. It reports the experimental set-up and procedures for measuring ACC system performance, followed by the modeling and simulation of the measured ACC performance. To further assess the interaction of ACC vehicles with human-controlled traffic, microscopic simulation involving both a human-driver model and an ACC model is discussed.
