Multianticipative Nonlocal Macroscopic Traffic Model

This article extensively studied and modeled multianticipative driving behavior using a car-following (i.e., microscopic) approach. This multianticipative driving behavior occurs when a vehicle reacts to a large number of vehicles ahead. There has been a lot of effort undertaken in order to model multianticipative driving behavior using a macroscopic approach and this is useful for real-time prediction and control applications due to its fast computational demand. This article puts forward derivation of an improved macroscopic model for multianticipative driving behavior using a modified gas-kinetic approach because these models have increasing failed with the increased number of applications. The article shows how the basic (microscopic) generalized force model fits well with real traffic data and the derivation method relaxes the condition that deceleration happens instantaneously. In order to show the improved performance of the derived model over the existing (multianticipative) macroscopic models, numerical simulations and theoretical analysis are carried out in the article.
