Simulation models are effective tools to solve traffic problems because of their feasibility to represent the most complex situations. Different car-following models have been used to simulate traffic movements. The car-following model known as Gazis-Herman-Rothery (GHR) is one of the earliest models that have been used since the late 1950`s and up to this time. In this model, the acceleration of follower is based on the spacing and relative speeds between two vehicles (the follower and the… CONTINUE READING
