The increasing need for efficient traffic optimization measures is making reliable, fast, and robust methods for traffic simulation more and more important. Apart from developing cellular automata models of traffic flow, this need has stimulated studies of suitable numerical algorithms that can solve macroscopic traffic equations based on partial differential equations.
