We investigate the existence of weak type solutions for a class of aggregation–diffusion PDEs with nonlinear mobility obtained as large particle limit of a suitable nonlocal version of the follow-the-leader scheme, which is interpreted as the discrete Lagrangian approximation of the target continuity equation. We restrict the analysis to bounded, non-negative initial data with bounded variation and away from vacuum, supported in a closed interval with zero-velocity boundary conditions. The main novelties of this work concern the presence of a nonlinear mobility term and the non-strict monotonicity of the diffusion function. As a consequence, our result applies also to strongly degenerate diffusion equations. The results are complemented with some numerical simulations.
