A Stochastic Continuous Cellular Automata Traffic Flow Model with a Multi-agent Fuzzy System

This paper proposes a new stochastic traffic flow model for highways (freeways), which is a hybrid between the classical cellular automata and the other microscopic traffic models, using continuous cellular automata. The computational efficiency of cellular automata models is combined with the accuracy of the microscopic models by introducing continuity in space. This continuity allows embedding of a multi-agent system based on fuzzy reasoning to simulate different driver-vehicle behaviours. The experimental results show that the model is able to reproduce the typical traffic flow phenomena with a variety of effects due to the heterogeneity within traffic stream.
