Abstract

The paper focuses on the simulation of signal control problems based on VISSIM microscopic simulator. VISSIM is a commonly used software in practice for diverse problems related to road traffic control. Beyond the standard use of VISSIM, advanced options are available. VISSIM COM interface and VISSIM DLL API may be used as well providing freedom to the traffic engineer. By exploiting the programming possibilities efficient simulations may be achieved. As additional possibility MATLAB may be involved in the traffic simulation as well creating an integrated environment with VISSIM. Thus, complex mathematical problems can be calculated online by MATLAB and used for VISSIM simulation.
