Online calibration with SUMO for network-wide traffic and emission monitoring – Case study ITS Huainan




online simulation, online calibration


Currently, the city of Huainan, China, is constructing its intelligent transportation system, and traffic and environmental monitoring system for efficiently and effectively monitoring and managing city traffic. DLR’s traffic information platform KeepMoving is adopted in the aforementioned system, where the existing online calibration module with SUMO has been extended in order to provide current and predicted traffic states and the resultant emission information in real-time. Accordingly, a comprehensive city-wide traffic situation can be captured and shown at the KeepMoving portal, as a decision support tool for traffic management personnel. The comparison between the real and simulated data shows a promising calibration result.
