Comparison Study of Software Tools for Online Traffic Simulation Supporting Real-time Traffic Management of Road Networks

Traffic models and simulation tools are increasingly used for traffic management of wide-area road networks by using real-time data. Originally, these systems were developed for the purpose of traffic modelling, planning and to compare different traffic control strategies during simulations. Considering the growing field of applications and the increase of supported functionalities, a comparison study of 12 simulation software tools available on the market has been conducted. Existing studies, product reviews and technical product specification documents have been analysed and additionally product developers were asked to participate in an on-line survey. As a result a review report has been drawn up. It became apparent that there are just a few traffic simulators which can be used for real-time simulation of wide-area road transportation networks.
