Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Rear-end collision on motorway is supposed. The simulation investigated the case when one vehicle in a platoon breaks suddenly, and then influences the following vehicle movements. The simulation model, called Optimum Speed Model, performed good stability in calculation. The result showed within 0.3G deceleration, it's wave transmits through the following vehicles increasingly, then gradually ceases as long as the initial vehicle gaps are appropriate.
