Traffic Signals and Lanes

Grether, Dominik; Thunig, Theresa

This chapter reviews concepts, usage and restrictions of the traffic signal control extension for MATSim. The chapter is particularly interesting for MATSim users, who plan to simulate traffic signals microscopically. If one wishes to capture signalization effects on a rather coarse level, consider the approach presented in Charypar (2008, pp. 139), that can be realized with the time variant network feature ofMATSim (Lämmel et al., 2010). Before we go into detail on motivating traffic signals with MATSim, a case study is reviewed.
