Soliton solutions of exactly solvable dissipative systems. (English) Zbl 1011.34069

Exact solutions to a car-following model are given under the assumption that the optimal velocity has a special explicit form. Numerical simulations indicate that these exact solutions in the form of Jacobi elliptic functions are stable.
