We explain why a sampling (division of data into homogenous sub-samples), segmentation (selection of sub-samples belonging to a small sub-area in ID plane - a segmentation zone), and scaling (a linear transformation of random variables representing a standard sub-routine in a general scheme of an unfolding procedure) are necessary parts of any vehicular data investigations. We demonstrate how representative traffic micro-quantities (in an unified representation) are changing with a location of…

Czech Republic 3 s-Unification for Vehicular Headway Modeling

It is demonstrated how representative traffic micro-quantities are changing with a location of a segmentation zone and it is shown that these changes are non-trivial and correspond fully to some previously-published results.

Kernel Estimates as General Concept for the Measuring of Pedestrian Density

A general framework evaluating density using various kernels brings desired properties of density estimates and incorporates the most of ordinarily used methods.



Vehicular headways on signalized intersections: theory, models, and reality

Using three different numerical schemes, it is demonstrated that an arrangement of vehicles on an intersection is a consequence of the general stochastic nature of queueing systems, rather than an consequence of traffic rules, driver estimation processes, or decision-making procedures.

Inner structure of vehicular ensembles and random matrix theory

Analytical derivation of time spectral rigidity for thermodynamic traffic gas

An one-dimensional thermodynamic particle model which is efficient in predictions about a microscopical structure of animal/human groups is introduced and analytical calculations leading to formulae for time clearance distribution as well as for time spectral rigidity are presented.


This article discusses the world of traffic physics, which uses computer models and traffic sensors to collect and interpret traffic flow information. Theoretical physicists such as Bernardo

Traffic and related self-driven many-particle systems

This article considers the empirical data and then reviews the main approaches to modeling pedestrian and vehicle traffic, including microscopic (particle-based), mesoscopic (gas-kinetic), and macroscopic (fluid-dynamic) models.

Random Matrices

The elementary properties of random matrices are reviewed and widely used mathematical methods for both hermitian and nonhermitian random matrix ensembles are discussed.

Equilibrium distributions in a thermodynamical traffic gas

We derive the exact formula for thermal-equilibrium spacing distribution of a one-dimensional particle gas with a repulsive potential V( r)= r −α (α > 0) depending on the distancer between the

Theoretical predictions for vehicular headways and their clusters

A derivation of analytical predictions for steady-state distributions of netto time gaps among clusters of vehicles moving inside a traffic stream by means of the theory of functional convolutions for time multi-clearances.

Spectral rigidity of vehicular streams (random matrix theory approach)

Using a method originally developed for the random matrix theory, we derive an approximate mathematical formula for the number variance ΔN(L) describing the rigidity of particle ensembles with a
