Simulation of Urban MObility - Wiki
Welcome to SUMOWiki
This Wiki contains information about the SUMO simulation framework. "Simulation of Urban MObility" (SUMO) is an open source, highly portable, microscopic road traffic simulation package designed to handle large road networks. It is mainly developed by employees of the Institute of Transportation Systems at the German Aerospace Center.
Here you can get answers to frequently asked questions or follow Tutorials. Furthermore this Wiki serves as communication platform for the Sumo developers and last but not least as a project reference concerning projects and publications in connection with Sumo.
The content of this Wiki is freely editable according to the wiki style. That means, whenever You find a solution to a problem mentioned on the mailing lists, feel free to add an article to this Wiki or an entry to the frequently asked questions. Write access is restricted. In order to be allowed to edit this Wiki, please drop us an email with your sourceforge-account name via the sumo-user mailing list. Here is a short help on editing articles.
SUMO started as an open source project in 2001. The idea was to support the traffic research community with a common platform to test and compare models of vehicle behaviour, traffic light optimisation, routing etc.
The package contains the following applications. Please remark, that most of the tools are command-line tools by now. They do nothing if you just double-click them (besides printing something).
- command-line simulation (SUMO)
- simulation with a graphical user interface (GUISIM); Screenshots
- network builder/converter (NETCONVERT)
- network builder/generator (NETGEN)
- OD-matrix to trip definitions converter (OD2TRIPS)
- a router using a dynamic user assignement approach (DUAROUTER)
- a router using junction ratio descriptions (JTRROUTER)
- a router using induction loop measures (DFROUTER)
- a polygon importer (POLYCONVERT)
The car movement model is a microscopic, space-continuous and time-discrete car-following model developed by Stefan Krauß (see Krauss1998_1, Krauss1998_2). The traffic assignment is made using the DUA-approach by Christian Gawron (see Gawron1998_1).
SUMO is licensed under the GPL.
From the begin on the following design principles were followed: the software has to be as portable and as fast as possible. The first is reached by usage of the standard C++ - functions only, the second by using Krauß' fast car-following model for the computation of vehicle movements.
Other limitations such as the memory usage are not considered that much, although a simulation of large areas shall be possible on normal desktop computers.
