Project Ideas for Google Summer of Code 2012

Note:
Prerequisites for all projects: C++ coding on Linux or Windows

Implement left-hand traffic

SUMO uses right-hand traffic and therefore presents obstacles when simulating traffic in many parts of the world.

Implement GUI-frontends for some of the command-line-only applications

The use of command-line applications presents a steep learning curve to many users. Even a generic tool for setting options may be of great help.

Enhance Capabilities of the Simulation Viewer

The SUMO-GUI application depends on configuration files. Since editing configuration files is difficult for many users, SUMO-GUI should provide for a mechanism to load the required files via menus.

Implement a movement model for pedestrians

Right now, SUMO can account for pedestrians when simulating inter-modal traffic. However, the model is quite coarse. The time for crossing roads is not modelled. Also, there is no flow model for crowded side walks.

Open for your Ideas

If you are planning to work with SUMO in your bachelor or masters thesis, what extra feature do you need to get started?
