Traffic flow models seek to describe the interaction of vehicles with their drivers and the infrastructure. Almost all the models directly or indirectly characterize the relationship among the traffic variables: the position, the speed, the flow, and the density of vehicles. These relationships can be based on either the behavior of individual vehicles in a traffic network in relation to the dynamics of other vehicles, the overall characteristics of the flow of vehicles in a traffic network, or a combination of the behavior of individual vehicles in a traffic network and the overall traffic flow characteristics. This paper describes the different models for automatic Traffic control system.
