Abstract

The past one and a half decade a rapid evolution in the sophistication of micro-simulation models have been seen, as well as a major expansion of their use in transportation engineering and planning practices. Models of the mid-nineties required inputs which were expensive to collect and not accurate enough to reflect the full range of traffic behaviour. Trough introduction of new technologys for advanced traffic control and information systems next generation models abound a source of data which can be used to reduce the cost of collecting the required data and improving its fidelity. The new datasets will help both the validation and calibration exercises. Continuing improvements in computer hardware will allow more detailed models to be developed, more simulation runs to be carried out, bigger networks to be modelled and for better visualisation of results. This lead to new challenges for software developers to fulfil customer needs. In this context this paper aims to perform as an overview that combines both, current traffic simulation systems - TSS capabilities and customer expectations. Therefore, a comparison of simulation tools as well as SWOT analysis has been conducted by analysing scientific papers and technical specifications.
