A study of wide moving jams in a new lattice model of traffic flow with the consideration of the driver anticipation effect and numerical simulation
In this paper, a new lattice model of traffic flow is proposed to investigate wide moving jams in traffic flow with the consideration of the driver anticipation information about two preceding sites. The linear stability condition is obtained by using linear stability analysis. The mKdV equation is derived through nonlinear analysis, which can be conceivably taken as an approximation to a wide moving jam. Numerical simulation also confirms that the congested traffic patterns about wide moving jam propagation in accordance with empirical results can be suppressed efficiently by taking the driver anticipation effect of two preceding sites into account in a new lattice model.
