Many traffic problems occur at urban intersections. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are being developed to address these problems. Unfortunately, the effects of these systems cannot be deduced directly from observing normal driving behaviour, because adding a support system alters the complete driving task. Therefore, a model must be used to represent both normal intersection driving behaviour and interaction with ADAS. This model should incorporate the structure of the driving task. Five modelling tools have been reviewed. No single modelling tool was found to fully fit all our reviewing criteria. Nevertheless, we select a promising research approach based on a combination of different models, and in particular making use of an existing framework for Multi-Agent Systems.
