10. Car-following and stability by V.L. Knoop
This lecture will discuss the three-phase traffic flow theory of Kerner and the phenomena capacity drop. The Wiedeman principle including action point modeling will be discussed. A short explanation on cellular automata models will be provided. The process of calibrating a car-following model is extensively discussed. This includes techniques on measuring the traffic flow and the implication of parameters. To conclude this lecture an exercise will be given.
Also read chapter 11 about longitudinal driving task models.
