The COLOMBO project uses several simulation software packages to emulate the real world environment in which the traffic management solutions are embedded as Software-in-the-Loop. The following figure shows how they interact in general. For more detailed information please refer to the stated respective deliverables or links in the sub-sections below.
For download instructions please refer to the general software page.
SUMO | Scenarios
SUMO (Simulation of Urban MObility) is an open source (GPL) traffic simulation. The extensions done in COLOMBO are integrated from the major release version 0.23 onwards. They comprise:
- PHEMlight, an emission model derived from PHEM,
- Models of pedestrian and bicycles movements,
- new traffic light algorithms, based on swarm intelligence.
- traceExporter to generate export files of simulated vehicles' traces for PHEM, OMNET, Shawn, ns-2/ns-3, and GPSDAT.
The evaluation suite written in JAVA assists to turn raw second-by-second SUMO output into semi-aggregated CSV files containing the performance indicators for each lane. Evaluation tool kit download (*.zip ~5 MB).
Further documentation on SUMO and the scenario XML files can be found at:
ns-3 (network simulator 3) is an open source (GPL) communication simulation.
The "iTETRIS Control System" (iCS) is an open source (GPL) V2X simulation
middleware that joins SUMO, ns-3, and applications into an executable system.
PHEM (Passenger and Heavy Vehicles Emission Model) is a model of vehicular emissions. PHEM is a commercial application.
