SUMO-Simulation of Urban Mobility
- SUMO an open source, portal, microscopic, multi-modal road traffic simulation.
- It allows for intermodal simulation including pedestrians and comes with a large set of tools for scenario creation.
- It allows to simulate as to how a given traffic demand which consists of single vehicles moves through a given road network.
- The simulator allows to address a large set of traffic management topics.
- It is purely microscopic: each vehicle is modeled explicitly, has an own route, and moves individually through the network.
