  author={Giacomo Dimarco and Andrea Tosin and Mattia Zanella},
In this paper, we derive second order hydrodynamic traffic models from kinetic-controlled equations for driver-assist vehicles. At the vehicle level we take into account two main control strategies synthesising the action of adaptive cruise controls and cooperative adaptive cruise controls. The resulting macroscopic dynamics fulfil the anisotropy condition introduced in the celebrated Aw-Rascle-Zhang model. Unlike other models based on heuristic arguments, our approach unveils the main physical… 


Kinetic-Controlled Hydrodynamics for Traffic Models with Driver-Assist Vehicles
A hierarchical description of traffic flow control by means of driver-assist vehicles aimed at the mitigation of speed-dependent road risk factors and the effectiveness of such a hierarchical approach at the various scales is developed.
Uncertainty damping in kinetic traffic models by driver-assist controls
In this paper, we propose a kinetic model of traffic flow with uncertain binary interactions, which explains the scattering of the fundamental diagram in terms of the macroscopic variability of

This paper shows how to construct a logically consistent fluid-dynamic traffic model from basic laws for the acceleration and interaction of vehicles from the gas-kinetic traffic equation of Paveri-Fontana.
A Macroscopic Multi-Lane Traffic Flow Model for ACC/CACC Traffic Dynamics
An extended second-order macroscopic traffic flow model is presented that describes multi-lane traffic dynamics and also incorporates the effects of adaptive cruise control (ACC) or cooperative ACC (CACC) and satisfies the time-gap principle of such systems on each lane.
Mean-field limit of a hybrid system for multi-lane multi-class traffic
Coupled mean-field equation and ODEs with discrete events motivated by vehicular traffic flow and the microscopic lane changing maneuver of the human-driven vehicles generates a source term to a Vlasov-type PDE.

A kinetic derivation of a class of macroscopic traffic flow equations including the Aw--Rascle equations is presented including the coefficients appearing in the equations are identified from the solutions of the underlying kinetic equations.
