Properties of a Microscopic Heterogeneous Multi-Anticipative Traffic Flow Model

This paper considered heterogeneous multi-anticipative car-following modeling established by estimating car-following models using empirical trajectory data. Based on the estimation results, the authors conclude that including multi-anticipative behavior strongly improves the descriptive performance of car-following models at the microscopic level. Furthermore, the papers has shown that the behavior of the individual drivers can only be captured by considering different car-following modeling paradigms, in this case the generalized Helly model family and the modified Lenz model family. Finally, it was concluded that the inter-driver differences were not only expressed by the suitability of different model types, but also by the large variability in the driver-specific car-following parameters. Based on the result, the authors proposed a HEterogeneous Multi-Anticipative (HEMA) model that includes the generalized Helly mode and the modified Lenz model.
