On the Car-Following Theory

  • Janez Usenik
  • Milan Batista


The article deals with bumper-to-bumper driving. A .systemicapproach to car-following (bumper-to-bumper driving)i.s described and the mathematical model has been developedand solved. With this approach an algorithm for analytical andnumerical solutions has been developed.
