Multi-Level Traffic Simulations for Virtual Environments

  • Traditionally traffic simulations are used to predict traffic jams, plan new roads or highways, and estimate road safety. They are also used in computer games and virtual environments. There are two general concepts of modeling traffic: macroscopic and microscopic modeling. Macroscopic traffic models take vehicle collectives into account and do not consider individual vehicles. Parameters like average velocity and density are used to model the flow of traffic. In contrast, microscopic traffic models consider each vehicle individually. Therefore, vehicle specific parameters are of importance, e.g. current velocity, desired velocity, velocity difference to the lead vehicle, individual time gap.
