Automatic control theory concepts were employed in the model formulation. The constant-time-headway policy was used to generate the command model of a human driver's decision for vehicle acceleration or deceleration. This command is the input signal fed into the driver-vehicle dynamics suggested by the crossover model. The proposed model was mathematically formulated, designed, implemented, and numerically simulated. The stability properties and validity of the proposed model were analyzed on the basis of the simulation results. It was demonstrated that the proposed model can reproduce well-known traffic phenomena such as shock waves, intersection starting and stopping waves, and loop structures of flow-density and speed-density plots.
