Version 0.20.0 (11.03.2014)

Bugfixes

  • Simulation
    • Fixed bug in the computation of safe velocities. Sometimes the velocity was too high (causing collisions) but most times it was too low (degrading traffic flow).
    • Vehicles now move to the right lane after passing instead of staying on the passing lane. (see Issue #1139)
    • Fixed simulation crash related to lane-changing.
    • Fixed bug where vehicles would no longer stop on the correct lane if they already stopped on the wrong lane.
    • Fixed bug which would cause collisions due to unsafe lane changes
    • Fixed crash when terminating the simulation while vehicles were performing continuous lane changing maneuvers (using option --lanechange.duration)
    • Fast vehicles can now be correctly inserted closely in front of slow vehicles Issue #1176.
    • Rerouting fixed for vehicles which are on internal lanes when the rerouting is requested Issue #1128.
  • SUMO-GUI
    • Fixed crash when using the object locator Issue #923 on some versions of Ubuntu].
    • Fixed bug where brake lights were shown even though the vehicle was not braking
    • Fixed bug where train carriages where sometimes drawn onto the wrong lane
    • The vehicle option 'select foes' now works correctly for foe vehicles on internal lanes
    • Fixed rare graphical glitch when drawing concave junction shapes
    • Fixed drawing of segmented vehicles (trains) which are longer than their departPos
  • NETCONVERT
    • Fixed bug which gave some links the wrong priority thus causing collisions (see ticket #1096)
    • Fixed crash when specifying connections from/to edges which are removed during network building
    • OSM import no longer fails when encountering empty strings in places where numerical values are expected.
    • Fixed bug where permissions involving the vClasses custom1 and custom2 were not written correctly.
    • Fixed bug where connections from a lane were sometimes indexed in the wrong order.
    • Disconnected nodes can no longer be joined into a cluster when using the option --junctions.join.
    • Fixed crash when using option --ramps.guess
    • option --ramps.guess no longer creates ramps if one of the involved connections is a turnaround
    • traffic lights which get new programs are no longer renamed (see ticket 1157)
  • DFRouter
    • Fixed crash/infinite loop when using option --guess-empty-flows. Use of this option is not (yet) recommended (see ticket 1198)
  • JTRRouter
    • Fixed handling of empty flows (no vehicles) together with a specified start time (see ticket 1109)
  • TraCI
    • instantInductionLoops are no longer included when calling calling traci.inductionloop.getIDList()
  • Tools
    • Fixed bug which prevented traceExporter.py from running
    • Fixed bug which caused all speed values in NS2 output to be 0
    • Fixed bug which prevented traceExporter.py option --penetration <FLOAT> from taking effect

Enhancements

  • Simulation
    • The summary of teleporting vehicles now lists all teleports according to their reason
    • Vehicles now perform an emergency braking maneuver to prevent driving across a red light. If this happens in a simulation it usually indicates that the length of the yellow-phase is to short in relation to the road speed and the braking capabilities. To enable driving across red lights, additional TraCI flags were added (see below).
    • Improved intersection model which results in less conflicts between vehicles with intersecting trajectories while on internal lanes.
    • Added a first version of the PHEMlight emission model (contribution of TU Graz)
    • Rerouting now keeps existing stops and adds new stops which are part of the new route even in cyclic routes
  • SUMO-GUI
    • Reworked drawing of trains to have more realistic carriage lengths. Also some busses are drawn with flexible segments now.
    • The vehicle parameter dialog now lists the maximum speed of the vehicle's type and the the time headway to the vehicle's current leader
    • added vehicle coloring mode by time headway
    • Traffic light colors now distinguish between green major (code G) and green minor (code g) by coloring the minor state with a darker color.
    • The lane color scheme by vClass now gives fine-grained control over coloring by using the permission bitmask to select the color.
    • Added menu option Edit->Select lanes which allow...->vClass. Together with the street-coloring option by selection this allows an easy overview of the road network permitted for a given vClass.
    • Added junction visualization option to disable drawing of junction shapes.
    • The vehicle coloring mode by max speed now factors in the speed limit on the current lane and the speedFactor of the vehicle. The same color thresholds as in coloring by speed are now used.
  • NETCONVERT
    • added option --osm.elevation <BOOL> which imports elevation data from OSM input (default false).
    • Conflicts between connections originating from the same edge are now recognized. This can be used to model interaction between right turning vehicles and straight moving non-vehicular traffic on a lane further right.
    • improved the heuristic for determining junction clusters to be joined when using option --junctions.join. This results in fewer invalid joins. Candidate clusters for manual intervention are indicated.
  • TraCI
    • added method traci.simulation.convert3D() which converts a road position to either x,y,z or lon,lat,alt
    • added additonal bits to the traci command Change Vehicle State/speed mode to configure the behavior at intersections. This can be used to make vehicles ignore right-of-way rules and also to force them to drive across a red light.
    • added optional argument 'flags' to traci.vehicle.setStop() in accordance with the Vehicle modification API specification
    • the API to Areal Lane Detectors was added; thanks to Mario Krumnow and Robbin Blokpoel
    • it is now possible to retrieve the leading vehicle within a specified range Vehicle API specification
    • a vehicle may be added using a full specification (which is available via XML input)
  • Tools
    • added tool xml2csv.py which converts all of the XML-output files written by SUMO to a flat-file (CSV) format which can by opened with most spread-sheet software
    • added tool csv2xml.py for the opposite conversion, requiring an XML schema and also for conversion to Google's protocol buffers xml2protobuf.py
    • osm/osmGet.py now supports retrieving very large areas by bounding box using the option --tiles <INT>. (previously this option was only supported together with option --oldapi which has severe size limitations}}
    • added option --gpx-output <FILE> to traceExporter.py which allows exporting vehicle trajactories as GPX files
    • added option --poi-output <FILE> to traceExporter.py which allows exporting vehicle trajectories as POIs
    • added option --vclass <STRING> to randomTrips.py which ensures that generated trips only depart and arrive at edges permitted for vclass
    • randomTrips.py now recognizes the network fringe even if the network contains turn-around connections (An edge belongs to the fringe if it contains only incoming or outgoing connections excepting turnarounds). This is important when using the option --fringe-factor <FLOAT> for generating plausible through-traffic in small networks.
    • added two tools for visualising emission behaviour
    • added some visualisation tools

Other

  • TraCI
    • TraCI version is now 8
    • fixed documentation of of command slow down: It changes speed smoothly over the given number of milliseconds (in contrast to command speed which changes using maximum acceleration/deceleration).
  • All Applications
    • Added option --xml-validation <STRING> with possible values never, always and auto defaulting to auto. This causes all input files to be validated against their respective schema, provided the schema-URL is declared in the toplevel XML-Tag (always requires the schema-URL to be present).
    • Added option --xml-validation.net <STRING> to all applications which read .net.xml-files which works like option --xml-validation <STRING> but applies only to sumo networks (default never since network validation is computationally expensive).
    • Most of the input and output files have an XML schema now, see http://www.sumo-sim.org/trac.wsgi/browser/trunk/sumo/data/xsd
