Title: Computer-Aided Analysis of a Modified Car-Following Model
Authors: Jose, Raul

Abstract: Perhaps the most difficult and also the most fundamental objective of a traffic model is the translation of an everyday traffic situation involving drivers and automobiles into a mathe¬≠matical equation. Complicated further by the iniportant ideas ef gap spacing time lag, traffic volume, and the fact that normal driving conditions are constantly changing, traffic engineers have turned to the "stimulus-response" principle based on the reasoning that given a specific situation (stimulus), the driver reacts to it in a specific manner (response). Again, we are confronted with the question of determining what factors comprise the term stimulus. Drivers usually react to several things at the same time, the two most important things being the distance from the car in front of theirs, and also the relative speed of the two cars.
