We need your Help!#

Building a scenario is a lot of work. If you have built a SUMO scenario you can share (under a sufficiently open license), please contact us.



A small-scale scenario based on the city of Bologna. The large roundabout can be found at 44.494554,11.314393. These scenarios were developed as part of the iTETRIS project. A publication on these scenarios was presented at SUMO Conference 2014: L. Bieker, D. Krajzewicz, A. Morra, C. Michelacci and F. Cartolano, "Traffic simulation for all: a real world traffic scenario from the city of Bologna", SUMO2014, p 19-26

Geneva - Digital Twin - Geneva Motorway (DT-GM)#

Everyone (after registering at ODPMS) can get access to fine-grained (minute resolution) real-time traffic data from traffic counters and use it as input in DT-GM. The details of modelling and results will also be publicly available in two papers, which for the moment we only mentioned in the README file since they are under review process. (if need it we can provide you preprint of the paper "Building a Motorway Digital Twin in SUMO: Real-Time Simulation of Continuous Data Stream from Traffic Counters")

ssnap_TapasCologne_0.1.gif The "TAPAS Cologne" simulation scenario describes the traffic within the city of Cologne, Germany for a whole day. The original demand data stems from TAPAS, a system which computes mobility wishes for an area population generated based on information about travelling habits of Germans and on information about the infrastructure of the area they live in.

More information about the system can be found within this publication on TAPAS. The original data was using a closed-source road network and was mapped onto one stemming from the OpenStreetMap project.

There is further information about TAPASCologne.

Outdated real-world scenarios#


This scenario seems to have been removed and is only here for historical reference. It was known to have lots of collisions due to unsafe traffic lights and some invalid junction definitions. It is also quite jammed.

Synthetic scenarios#

Synthetic - or abstract - scenarios only resemble typical layouts of real-world junctions and arterials without mapping a very specific one. Some synthetic scenarios of the COLOMBO R&D project are examples of the German guideline RiLSA. They are described in D1.1 "Scenario Specifications and Required Modifications to Simulation Tools"(chapter 4).


This scenario can be followed as a tutorial - it showcases how routes can be generated within a network, using counting data.

Test cases#

SUMO comes with a large set of tests which are run at least once per day (and most are run on each repository commit). You can extract them and use them as basis for your own (small) scenarios.
