Traffic dynamics (traveling wave)
You are given the problem of analyzing the dynamics of a line of cars moving on a one-lane highway. One approach to this problem is to assume that the line of cars behaves like a group of coupled oscillators. How would you set this problem up in a tractable way? Make lots of assumptions.
Can anyone help me get started on this? I'm having trouble even setting up the differential equation.

Although maybe you're looking for just an ODE model.
