Traffic engineering in VISUM

Traffic models often model node impedances in a highly simplified manner. However, this simplification heavily bears on the quality of the route choice during the assignment, since especially in urban networks the wait times mainly arise at nodes.

Against this background and to facilitate the network-wide analysis and optimization of junctions, we have significantly extended the possibilities of working on tasks in the field of traffic engineering with VISUM during the past years.… Read more

“RIO” optimizes traffic light control

Intersections play a decisive role in urban transport, in particular if the interaction between vehicles is controlled by traffic lights. It is often useful to implement traffic-responsive signal control systems. However, urban areas, especially those in emerging countries, which have to cope with high traffic volumes, can only handle the increasing traffic loads by using fixed-time signal control systems.… Read more
