A TIME DEPENDENT MODEL FOR SIMULATION OF AN URBAN BUS ROUTE

During the interactive simulation, the route and the buses are shown on a display. The operator acts from a keyboard by giving commands e.g. for an extra bus or to turn a bus short of its terminus, as in real traffic. The purpose is to evaluate control strategies in varying situations, by repeated simulation runs of one or two strategies, for the training of controlling operators and for the assistance of traffic engineers in formulating general rules for strategy application. The program collects overall statistics automatically, but the operator has to ask for local data e.g. waiting times at certain stops. The report refers to an example from a bus route in Stockholm, where each simulated 20 min run takes 0.8 seconds cpu-time on a Dec-10 computer. /TRRL/
