3rd SUMO Conference 2015 Berlin, Germany
Urban traffic is a major challenge to the traffic simulation community and traffic engineering in general. The heterogeneity of traffic modes is still increasing with electric bikes and multiple sharing modes calling for new models and increased complexity for existing simulators. On the other hand, traffic engineers are supported by readily available tools, such as the open-source package Simulation of Urban Mobility (SUMO), which can build a working prototype of a multimodal simulation scenario in virtually no time based on open data services like OpenStreetMap. Furthermore demand data, either stemming from public transport data or from the evaluation of people’s day plans, can now be collected with the support of a networked and networking population which enables the detailed estimation of the effects of engineering measurements as well as emerging new technologies through the means of individual (microscopic) traffic simulation. This simulation of every single actor allows the integration of behavioral data which can interface with the existing models to gather new insights into the social dynamics of traffic as well.
This volume contains extended versions of papers presented at the third SUMO User Conference (SUMO2015), which was held during May 7-8, 2015, in Berlin-Adlershof, Germany. SUMO is a well-established microscopic traffic simulation suite which has been available since 2001 and provides a wide range of traffic planning and simulation tools. The conference proceedings give a good overview of the applicability and usefulness of simulation tools like SUMO ranging from the in-house logistics applications and traffic signals to the impact of floods on the traffic of complete cities. Another aspect of the tool suite, its universal extensibility due to the availability of the source code, is reflected in contributions covering network modification tools and workflow improvements to develop microscopic traffic simulation scenarios.
Several articles give outlines of detailed aspects of public transport modeling and inner city vehicle networks when setting up a simulation with SUMO as well as an overview about the application of the tool in large-scale scenarios or for traffic light evaluation. The conference series’s aim is bringing together the large international user community and exchanging experience in using SUMO, while presenting results or solutions obtained using the software. This collection should inspire you to try your next project with the SUMO suite as well or to find new applications in your existing environment.
