I have a couple of doubts about if these scenarios are suitable to be modeled as a Poisson process. I will like to have your views and arguments why.
Packets are lost due to packet overflow in the switch.
Trucks pass by on a highway
Goals are scored in a soccer game
Buses arriving a bus stop.
My view : Thinking of one of the Poisson properties which is independence, I believe the first scenario of packets cannot be modeled as a Poisson process because, the next packet is dependent of the last packet(the packet that caused the overflow).
The second will be a Poisson process since the arrivals of trucks on a highway are independent of each other. Also the third can be modeled as a Poisson process because goals scored are independent to others (but it can be debatable since team motivation because of past goals can be a contributing factor to another goal)
