Traffic simulations facilitate the evaluation of infrastructure changes as well as policy changes before they are implemented on the road. For example, the effectiveness of environmental zones or traffic light control algorithms can be tested and optimised in a simulation before being deployed in the real world.
SUMO (Simulation of Urban MObility) is a free, open, microscopic and continuous road traffic simulation suite designed to handle large road networks. It allows modelling of intermodal traffic systems including road vehicles, public transport and pedestrians. SUMO includes a wealth of supporting tools, which handle tasks such as route finding, visualisation, network import and emission calculation. SUMO can be enhanced with custom models and provides various APIs to remotely control the simulation.
SUMO offers various features such as:
- Microscopic simulation
- Online interaction
- Multimodal simulation incl. vehicles, public transport, pedestrians
- Automatic generation of time schedules of traffic lights
- No limitations in network size and number of simulated vehicles
- Evaluation of eco-aware routing based on pollutant emission and investigations of autonomous route choice on the overall network
SUMO supports the import formats OpenStreetMap, VISUM, VISSIM and NavTeq.
SUMO is implemented in C++ and uses only portable libraries.
The SUMO package contains a number of different applications. See http://sumo.dlr.de for details.
