A Comparative Study of Urban Road Traffic Simulators
Computer Science Department, ReSI team, Moulay Ismail University, Faculty of Science, 50000 Meknes, Morocco
Road traffic management has become a worldwide concern. Several traffic simulators have been developed in order to contribute to solving traffic congestion problems. Comparative studies of simulators in this field of activity are concerned with the comparison of the simulation results with the results of the real situation; others are interested in the ability of certain platforms to simulate public transport systems. Our study aims purports to cover carryout of existing simulators in the sense that, on the one hand, poised in eleven major reviews of simulation platforms (commercial and open-source) the most used, given that the existing comparative studies do not cover all simulators we compared. On the other hand, our comparative study takes into consideration new criteria such as use wireless sensors and the ability of simulators to support GIS (Geographic Information System).
