A Multiscale Simulation Platform for Connected and Automated Transportation Systems

Traffic simulation is an important tool that can assist researchers, analysts, and policymakers in testing vehicle/traffic control algorithms, gaining insights into micro/macro traffic dynamics, and designing traffic management strategies. However, different implementations require different simulation scales, and no multiscale simulation platform satisfies all requirements. In this project, the authors proposed to establish a multiscale vehicle-traffic-demand (VTD) simulation platform for connected and automated transportation systems (CATS). This is particularly meant for the control and management of CATS with varying penetration rates of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs). The authors built a microscopic vehicle-in-the-loop (VIL) simulation platform, which used Unity 3D to simulate/visualize vehicle operations/dynamics and Simulation of Urban Mobility (SUMO) to simulate traffic flow dynamics.
