COMPUTER GRAPHIC ANIMATION OF UTCS-1/NETSIM TRAFFIC FLOWS

The development of a program for computer graphic animation of network traffic flows to increase the potential effectiveness of the UTCS-1/NETSIM network simulation package by visually displaying vehicle movements through street networks is described. The program is a tool that can aid traffic engineers in generating and evaluating alternative control strategies by enabling them to view network traffic in real time. It thereby provides them with additional information, such as lane-specific delays and queue buildups, that would not be readily available through the standard statistical output of UTCS-1. (Author)
