A new microscopic simulation method of heavy-ion collisions is formulated by incorporating the two-nucleon collision process into the antisymmetrized version of molecular dynamics. This method can describe quantum-mechanical features such as shell effects. The fragment mass distribution of the C12+12C reaction at 28.7 MeV/nucleon is shown to be reproduced very well by this new method combined with the treatment of statistical cascade decays of excited fragments, which verifies the usefulness of the new method.
