Abstract: A simple car-following model that includes the reaction time of drivers is
analyzed by numerical continuation techniques for the case of five cars on a ring. A
two-dimensional bifurcation diagram is computed that summarizes the dynamics
of steady states, oscillating solutions, collisions, and stopping as a function of
model parameters. Further, a mechanism is proposed by which different spatial
patterns may appear. Copyright c 2004 IFAC
