Abstract

Most of the conventional traffic Cellular Automaton (CA) models based on the NagelSchreckenberg model (NaSch model) have two problems: an unrealistic deceleration dynamics when a vehicle agent collides with a preceding vehicle in a stopping event, and the problem with reproducing the synchronized flow in Kerner's three-phase theory. In this paper, a revised stochastic NishinariFukuiSchadschneider (S-NFS) model, belonging to the class of NaSch models, is presented. The proposed CA model, where a random braking effect is improved by considering the dependency on the velocity difference and heading distance with a preceding vehicle, is confirmed to overcome the two above-mentioned drawbacks.
