In ref (21), the authors modified an OV model, introducing the new OV function without using the lane change behavior to get a model more reactive on braking situation called modified optimal velocity model (MOVM).
In this study, we carry out the simulations to investigate whether MVSDM can overcome the shortcomings of previous models and compared MVSDM with MOVM proposed by (21).
At t = 0, all cars start up according to the MOVM, VSDM, and MVSDM.
Figure 11 shows the behavior of vehicle according MOVM, MVSDM, and VSDM.
