In this paper a concept for online simulations of urban road networks is developed, with real-time traffic data from induction loops serving as input for microscopic simulations. From the simulations, estimates of traffic conditions for regions which are not adequately covered by measurements are determined. The quality of the reproduced traffic states with regard to vehicle densities and link travel times is investigated. The dynamic data are processed by a route guidance system based on a fuzzy logic approach. As an example of dynamic traffic management, different strategies for individual en-route guidance systems and their efficiencies are studied. The study area is the road network of Duisburg.
