Network models for nonlocal traffic flow

  title={Network models for nonlocal traffic flow},
  author={Jan Friedrich and Simone G{\"o}ttlich and Maximilian Osztfalk},
We present a network formulation for a traffic flow model with nonlocal velocity in the flux function. The modeling framework includes suitable coupling conditions at intersections to either ensure maximum flux or distribution parameters. Based on an upwind type numerical scheme, we prove the maximum principle and the existence of weak solutions on networks. We also investigate the limiting behavior of the proposed models when the nonlocal influence tends to infinity. Numerical examples show… Expand

The theory of kinematic waves is applied to the problem of estimating how a ‘hump’, or region of increased concentration, will move along a crowded main road, and is applicable principally to traffic behaviour over a long stretch of road. Expand

A non-local traffic flow model for 1-to-1 junctions
We present a model for a class of non-local conservation laws arising in traffic flow modelling at road junctions. Instead of a single velocity function for the whole road, we consider two differentExpand
Speed limit and ramp meter control for traffic flow networks
In this work, a method to manage variable speed limits combined with coordinated ramp metering within the framework of the Lighthill–Whitham–Richards (LWR) network model is introduced and the switch of speeds at certain fixed points in time is explained. Expand
A non-local macroscopic model for traffic flow
In this work, we propose a non-local Hamilton–Jacobi model for traffic flow and we prove the existence and uniqueness of the solution of this model. This model is justified as the limit of a rescaledExpand

Nonlocal approaches for multilane traffic models
A multilane traffic model based on balance laws, where the nonlocal source term is used to describe the lane changing rate, and together with the $L^1$-contractivity property, it is proved existence and uniqueness of weak solutions. Expand
