Traffic Flow Dynamics: Data, Models and Simulation

This instructional guide describes the use of simulation and mathematical models in determining traffic flow dynamics. Part 1 focuses on data collection with chapters on trajectory and floating-car data, cross-sectional data, and spatiotemporal reconstruction of the traffic state. Part 2 presents various mathematical models including: continuity equations, the Lighthill–Whitham–Richards Model, macroscopic models, car-following models, lane-changing models, stability analysis, and phase diagrams. Part 3 outlines traffic flow theory applications. Chapters include: travel time estimation, fuel consumption and emissions, and optimization. This textbook includes problems and solutions and an accompanying website,, provides some interactive content.
