    Abstract

    This work propose a survey of two important components of traffic simulation models: car following and lane changing. A intensive review of the literature have been made, and an attempt to classify these models have been undertaken. The characteristics, advantages and drawbacks have been set in evidence. For a better comparison, a simulation program was also created to test car-following models. We used it to see how a few vehicles progress within a small network. Concerning the lane-changing problem, the study was more theoretical. A distinction has been made between deterministic and probabilistic models, and several propositions have been expressed for future research, specially about the probabilistic approach.
