Abstract

This paper presents a class of one-dimensional cellular automata (CA) models on traffic flows, featuring nonlocal look-ahead interactions. We develop kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) algorithms to simulate the dynamics. The standard KMC method can be inefficient for models with global interactions. We design an accelerated KMC method to reduce the computational complexity in the evaluation of the nonlocal transition rates. We investigate several numerical experiments to demonstrate the efficiency of the accelerated algorithm, and obtain the fundamental diagrams of the dynamics under various parameter settings.
