Full Document (pdf MB) This document is a guide to developing documentation for microscopic traffic simulation models developed for the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) by using the VISSIM simulation environment. Model documentation produced according to the guidelines in this document are designed to assist prospective project managers and model users in determining whether the associated model meets their analytical needs, as well as assisting future simulation.

A Guide to Documenting VISSIM-Based Microscopic Traffic Simulation Models The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has released a guide to producing documentation for microscopic traffic simulation models developed for WSDOT by using the VISSIM simulation. A highway network model is constructed using a microscopic traffic flow simulation model, VISSIM, and is intended to provide an evaluation environment for advanced traffic.

This document is a technical summary of the Enhanced Transportation Flow Open-source Microscopic Model (ETFOMM) software.

OBJECTIVE This TechBrief describes research on the development of an open source microscopic traffic simulation software with proven traffic models, advanced computing algorithms, and a distributed/cross platformFile Size: KB. Simulation models are generally classified into macroscopic and microscopic models, depending on their level of modeling detail.

Macroscopic models describe the traffic process with aggregate quantities, such as flow and density. Microscopic models describe the behavior of the individual drivers as they react to their perceived environments. model is the core of every microscopic traffic simulation software.

In the context of this research, the thesis develops procedures for calibrating the steady-state car-following models in a number of well known microscopic traffic simulation software including: CORSIM, AIMSUN, VISSIM, PARAMICS and INTEGRATION and then compares the VISSIM and.

Traffic simulation software has become increasingly more popular as a traffic analysis tool used in transportation analyses.

One reason for this increase in the use of simulation is the need to model and analyze the operation of complex transportation systems under congested conditions.

Such models are conventionally arrived at by integrating microscopic traffic flow models and converting the single-entity level characteristics to comparable system level characteristics. Macro simulation models evaluate traffic flow as a whole without consideration of the characteristics and features of individual vehicles in the traffic stream.

They point out that microscopic traffic simulators, such as AIMSUM, PARAMICS and VISSIM, have been widely used as an analysis tool in transportation design as well as assessment, and then describe some key capabilities of VISSIM. Gai () indicates that VISSIM is the most advanced and widely used microscopic traffic simulation software.

the two-fluid parameters. They found that the two-fluid model is sensitive in the driver’s behavior (aggressive vs. conservative drivers). Williams et al. (17) and Mahmassani et al. (18) investigated through simulation, network level relationships between the three fundamental variables of traffic flow, speed, flow and density.

VISSIM is a microscopic, time step and behavior based simulation model developed by PTV in Germany, which can be used to model traffic operations in urban road network and highway corridors, especially, the transit and mixed traffic operations. It simulates traffic flow on the road network by moving driver-vehicle-units as single entities.

MOTUS is an open-source microscopic traffic simulation package that was developed in java. It is especially aimed at reasearchers that need full knowledge of everything in simulation as well as the ability to extend the capabilities with new technologies, algorithms or models.

Why MOTUS was developed MOTUS was developed for the following reasons. Beaulieu M et al () A guide to documenting VISSIM-based microscopic traffic simulation models. Report WA-RD Washington State Transportation Center Seattle, WA Google Scholar 4.

Microscopic traffic simulation models represent individual vehicle movements, and are becoming an important tool for traffic analysis and management3.

Microscopic traffic simulation models are very useful to assess traffic operational strategies and policies, performance of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), or to evaluate decisions to. model and the analytical model.

Besides a regression model and a gap-acceptance model, microscopic simulation can also predict roundabout performance. A core algorithm behind the microscopic simulation is based on the car-following theory and lane-changing logic.

Some of the existing microscopic traffic simulation models include. PTV Vissim provides you with traffic flow simulation at different resolutions, all within one software. At the microscopic level, the traffic simulation software offers the highest level of detail as vehicles and pedestrians can be individually simulated.

Compared to microscopic models, mesoscopic models have a lower level of detail. This paper aims to examine the effect of the percentage of heavy vehicles on the performance of toll plazas in terms of the queue length using the microscopic traffic simulation model called VISSIM.

The findings indicate that the percentage of heavy vehicles in traffic flow. Experiment data are divided into training data and test data. The proposed behavior model is then calibrated by training data, and the model is validated by both offline segment-based phase and duration prediction and online VISSIM-based simulation.

Further, we test the model with videotaped TCA behavior data at a real-world intersection. 2. Model-based Traffic Simulation An essential component in traffic simulation is portraying the mo-tions of vehicles at various levels of detail. Early research on the modeling and simulation of traffic flows can be traced back to s, when the prototypes of macroscopic and microscopic traffic models were proposed respectively [Pip53,LW55].CORSIM (2, 3, 6, 7) is a microscopic simulation model designed for the analysis of freeways, urban streets, and corridors or networks.

The model includes two predecessor models: FRESIM and NETSIM. FRESIM is a microscopic model of freeway traffic, and NETSIM is a model of urban street traffic.The model describes the impedance of CAVs' speed reduction on traffic flow and considers the impact of potential additional lane change induced by the speed reduction.

A VISSIM based microscopic simulation evaluation is performed. The results confirm that the accuracy of the proposed model is .
