In this paper a cellular automata model for one-lane traffic flow is presented. A new set of rules is proposed to better capture driver reactions to traffic that are intended to preserve safety on the highway. As a result, drivers behavior is derived from an analysis that determines the most appropriate action for a vehicle based on the distance from the(More)
This paper presents a new single-lane cellular automaton model to simulate microscopic traffic flow. The model introduces a new set of simple rules to change the speed of vehicles that incorporates three important thresholds required by the follower vehicle to accelerate, slow down or maintain its speed. Thus, the space gap, relative speed and limited(More)
In this paper a recent variable anticipation cellular automata model for single-lane traffic flow is extended to analyze the situation of free and congested flow in the Highway from Mexico City to Cuernavaca. This highway presents free flow in standard days; but in the returning day of long weekends or holidays it exhibits congested flow and in rush hours(More)
