This is a three lanes high way traffic simulation.
You can adjust number of cars with slider when it is paused.
The color turn yellow when it is accelerating, turn red when hit brake, turn green when in the same speed.
It turn into blue when changing lanes.

You can click one of the car to change id and use slider to change it's maximum speed when in pause mode.

n1 slider is the maximum number of cars per line: the simulation will be initialized when n1 is changed.

Checkbox:
if "change" is checked: Car can change lane when there is car too close in front.
if "pushed" is checked: Car can change lane when there is car tracing behind it.
if "safe" is checked: reaction time for each driver is considered. (minimum distance between cars= velocity * reaction time)  

Have fun!

1. add segments to represent the displacement(angle circulate the path). The color of each segment represent it's lane (red-green-blue: red segment mean innermost lane).
2. add arrow to represent maximum velocity for each car (yellow dot to show velocity V(t))--- (move mouse to the tip of the arrow to show/modify properties for that car).
