Abstract Based on the pioneer work of Konishi et al, a new control
method is presented to suppress the traffic congestion in the
coupled map (CM) car-following model under an open boundary.
A control signal concluding the velocity differences of the two
vehicles in front is put forward. The condition under which the
traffic jam can be contained is analyzed. The results are
compared with that presented by Konishi et al [Phys.
Rev. 1999 E 60 4000--4007]. The simulation results show that
the temporal behavior obtained by our method is better than that by
the Konishi's et al. method, although both the methods could
suppress the traffic jam. The simulation results are consistent
with the theoretical analysis.

Altmetric calculates a score based on the online attention an article receives. Each coloured thread in the circle represents a different type of online attention. The number in the centre is the Altmetric score. Social media and mainstream news media are the main sources that calculate the score. Reference managers such as Mendeley are also tracked but do not contribute to the score. Older articles often score higher because they have had more time to get noticed. To account for this, Altmetric has included the context data for other articles of a similar age.
