Spatiotemporal Complexity of a City Traffic Jam
(Old City Publishing, 2016)
We model city traffic by a cellular automaton. It consist of a row of interacting cars through a sequence of traffic lights, synchronized by a propagating green signal. We start the system from an initial jammed condition ...
Controlling traffic jams on urban roads modeled in Coloured Petri net using Genetic Algorithm
This paper presents an application to traffic lights control in congested urban traffic, in real time, taking as input the position and route of the vehicles in the involved areas. This data is obtained from the communication ...
City traffic jam relief by stochastic resonance
We simulate traffic in a city by means of the evolution of a row of interacting cars, using a cellular automaton model, in a sequence of traffic lights synchronized by a ‘‘green wave’’. When our initial condition is a ...
Avoiding traffic jams: Hitchhiking behavior as a strategy to reduce ant workers’ traffic on the foraging trail
During foraging, thousands of leaf-cutting ant workers travel along high traffic foraging trails which, when narrow, reduce the leaf delivery rate due to the reduction in workers’ travel-speed. On the other hand, high ...
Modeling traffic on crossroads
A simplified traffic model is studied, consisting of two vehicles traveling through a sequence of crossroads regulated by yield signs. A car approaching a yield sign stops if, in the other street, there is a car closer ...
