  • By means of microscopic simulations we show that noninstantaneous adaptation of the driving behavior to the traffic situation together with the conventional method to measure flow-density data provides a possible explanation for the observed inverse-lambda shape and the wide scattering of flow-density data in "synchronized" congested traffic. We model a memory effect in the response of drivers to the traffic situation for a wide class of car-following models by introducing an additional… CONTINUE READING
