Analysis of Asymmetric Lane Changing in a CA-Based Highway Traffic Model
Lars Habel and Michael Schreckenberg

For simulating multi-lane highway traffic with cellular automata (CA) traffic models, realistic lane change rules are required. In many countries, legal regulations distinguish between driving lanes and overtaking lanes. Therefore, asymmetric lane change rules are needed. In this contribution, a detailed analysis of recently presented lane change rules for the CA traffic model by Lee et al. (Phys. Rev. Lett. 92(23) (2004) 238702) is provided.
