Microscopic traffic hysteresis in traffic oscillations : a behavioral perspective
Chen, Danjue, Laval, Jorge, Ahn, Soyoung, & Zheng, Zuduo (2012) Microscopic traffic hysteresis in traffic oscillations : a behavioral perspective. Transportation Research Part B : Methodological, 46(10), pp. 1440-1453.
This paper studies traffic hysteresis arising in traffic oscillations from a behavioral perspective. It is found that the occurrence and type of traffic hysteresis is closely correlated with driver behavior when experiencing traffic oscillations and with the time driver reaction begins relative to the starting deceleration wave. Statistical results suggest that driver behavior is different depending on its position along the oscillation. This suggests that different car-following models should be used inside the different stages of an oscillation in order to replicate realistic congestion features.
