Abstract:The Nagel-Schreckenberg model is a simple cellular automaton for a realistic description of single-lane traffic on highways. For the case υmax=1 the properties of the stationary state can be obtained exactly. For the more relevant case υmax > 1, however, one has to rely on Monte Carlo simulations or approximative methods. Here we study several analytical approximations and compare with the results of computer simulations. The role of the braking parameter p is emphasized. It is shown… Expand

A VARIED FORM OF THE NAGEL–SCHRECKENBERG MODEL

- Computer Science
- 2001

By making slight changes of the Nagel–Schreckenberg model, we propose a varied model for a realistic description of the traffic flow on single-lane highways. While the NaSch model fails to cover the… Expand

Mean-field theory for the Nagel-Schreckenberg model with overtaking strategy

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- 2018

The main results are that the reason why traffic flow is increased in the regime where densities exceed the maximum flow density is found, and the influence of traffic flow on the transition density is dominated by the braking probability. Expand

CAR-ORIENTED MEAN-FIELD THEORY REVISITED

- Physics
- 2004

We study the Car-Oriented Mean-Field approximation (COMF) to the Nagel–Schreckenberg model in the case of vmax=3. The self-consistent equations are obtained. The solution is reached by the method of… Expand

Random walk theory of jamming in a cellular automaton model for traffic flow

- Physics, Mathematics
- 2001

The jamming behavior of a single lane traffic model based on a cellular automaton approach is studied. Our investigations concentrate on the so-called VDR model which is a simple generalization of… Expand

Critical behaviour of a cellular automaton highway traffic model

- Physics, Mathematics
- 2000

We derive the critical behaviour of a cellular automaton traffic flow model using an order parameter breaking the symmetry of the jam-free phase. Random braking appears to be the symmetry-breaking… Expand

Analysis of a cellular automaton model for car traffic with a slow-to-stop rule

- Computer Science
- Theor. Comput. Sci.
- 2010

This work proposes a modification of the widely known Benjamin-Johnson-Hui cellular automaton model for single-lane traffic simulation that includes a 'slow-to-stop' rule that exhibits more realistic microscopic driver behaviour than the BJH model. Expand

Analytical Solution of Traffic Cellular Automata Model

- Computer Science
- 2009

This study simulates traffic flow by the NaSch model under different combination of parameters, which are maximal speed, dawdling probability and density, and obtains the analytical solution of traffic CA. Expand

Relating the dynamics of road traffic in a stochastic cellular automaton to a macroscopic first-order model

- Computer Science, Physics
- 2005

This paper describes a relation between a microscopic traffic cellular automaton (TCA) model and the macroscopic first-order hydrodynamic model of Lighthill, Whitham, and Richards (LWR) and indicates that, in the presence of noise, the capacity flows in the derived fundamental diagram are overestimations of those of the STCA model.

Fundamental diagram of a one-dimensional cellular automaton model for pedestrian flow — the ASEP with shuffled update

- Computer Science
- 2007

A one-dimensional cellular automaton model for pedestrian flow that describes the movement of pedestrians in a long narrow corridor is investigated. The model is equivalent to the asymmetric simple… Expand
