Abstract

Applications by simulation are known worldwide, and more and more complex systems can be analysed by this tool because of rapid development of computers. The traffic modelling, as application field is in similar state, there are currently at least 50 traffic simulators in Europe with varying qualities of functionality. Rather than developing one more traffic simulator, it would be more useful to develop an open framework, which would be used to integrate the best features of the existing simulators. Additionally, users are interested in the simulation of specific events, for example how can a stopped vehicle in a lane affect to the rest of the network, etc. This publication presents more detailed requirements for generic framework modules for entering the road network data, visualization, analysis, and high performance simulation and shows a developed framework with these requirements.
