A connection between two lanes within a junction. Within
microsim, each lane has links (connections) to the following lanes.
A link contains the information whether the vehicle has to
decelerate in front of the junction.
A small computer program which normally doees not have to be
compiled. The SUMO package includes several scripts, most written in
A source means a place at which vehicles are inserted into

A file containing the sources (program code) for a
project. The source code must be compiled in order to get the
runnable application. It is called "tar-ball" because of using the
application "tar" to join all the source files into a single file.
In a submicroscopic traffic (flow) simulation, the
atomic instances are parts of the vehicle or the driver (gearing or
behavior is modelled)
TIME: Either a floating point value in seconds (42.3) or a human-readable-time in the format HOUR:MINUTE:SECOND (6:30:0.5) or DAY:HOUR:MINUTE:SECOND (35:12:0:0)
traffic lights system
A reduced information about a vehicle's movement; contains
only the departure time, the begin, and the end edge. Must be
transformed into a route using a router for being used within the
trip-table (trip list):
