The flow of vehicular traffic has been studied in many different ways. After an introduction, we will give overview of several models for the flow on single lane road: a fluid dynamics theory, a approach based on the dynamics of individual vehicles and a model using a cellular automata. The latter model will be used to study to flow in two dimensions representing the traffic in a city with crossings and traffic lights.
