Overview

Traffic simulation is the mathematical modelling of transportation systems (highways, arterial routes, roundabouts, grid systems, etc.) through the application of processes and specialized software to assist the design and management of transportation systems. This key function allows planners and engineers to dimension roadway facilities and anticipate likely impacts of new developments. However, traffic prediction modelling is a vast domain in which a wide range of models suited for specific purposes exist. Moreover, the development of new forms of mobility, including the future deployment of autonomous vehicles, require planners to stay on top of this fast-moving discipline.
