Colloquium – Benjamin Seibold, Temple University

March 22 @ 3:00 pm - March 27 @ 4:00 pm

Title: Phantom Traffic Jams, Autonomous Vehicles, and the Future of Traffic Modelling Abstract: Initially homogeneous vehicular traffic flow can become inhomogeneous even in the absence of obstacles. In this "phantom traffic jam'' phenomenon, small perturbations grow into traffic waves, called “jamitons”. Via the mathematical analysis of traffic models, we demonstrate that phantom jams can arise from the collective behavior of all drivers on the road, and that jamitons are mathematical analogs of detonation waves. Moreover, we discuss how connected and autonomous…
