Comprehensive, up-to-date traffic monitoring is the basis for mobility information and traffic management systems. However, conventional stationary traffic data measurements are hardly able to provide the necessary data for an area-wide monitoring and cannot deliver enough information for many traffic related services. Therefore an alternative approach(More)
Database benchmarking is most valuable if real-life data and workloads are available. However, real-life data (and workloads) are often not publicly available due to IPR constraints or privacy concerns. And even if available, they are often limited regarding scalability and variability of data characteristics. On the other hand, while easily scalable,(More)
This paper presents the results of a case study of road infrastructure assessments of two large German cities, namely Berlin and Munich. The major aim is to investigate the quality of the main road network as a whole and to identify infrastructure deficiencies. The used methodology is based on integral assessment criteria derived from comprehensive traffic(More)
SUMO is the acronym for "Simulation of Urban MObility" and is an open source project concerned with the development and usage of a traffic simulation. The project is a part of our scientific work concerned with the verification of different microscopic models of traffic, and their comparison ([1]). Further, the traffic science community often involves ideas(More)
Travel time is a main criterion for route choice in a road network, for private as well as for commercial users. However, travel times on metropolitan area roads are subject to strong fluctuations due to the variability of traffic demand and lots of interference like traffic lights. Conventional stationary detectors observe traffic flow and local speed at(More)

1 The Bavarian Road Administration (BRA) is responsible for all extra-urban traffic signals in the 2 German state of Bavaria. The BRA is instructed by ministerial decree to establish a quality 3 management system for its traffic signals including periodical reviews of relevant performance 4 indicators at the signals. Proposed practice is to interview the(More)
Since the year 2000, the Centre of Applied Informatics and the Institute for Transport Research at the German Aerospace Centre develops a microscopic road traffic simulation package named "SUMO" – an acronym for "Simulation of Urban MObility". Meanwhile, the simulation is capable to deal with realistic scenarios such as large cities and is used for these(More)
