A Comparison of the VISSIM and CORSIM Traffic Simulation Models On A Congested Network

  title={A Comparison of the VISSIM and CORSIM Traffic Simulation Models On A Congested Network},
  author={Loren Bloomberg and Jim Dale},
Traffic simulation packages like CORSIM and VISSIM are frequently used as tools for analyzing traffic, since they are an effective approach for quantifying the benefits and limitations of different alternatives. There may be those who are cautious or skeptical about the application of a complex program to make a critical design decision. This concern is often appropriate, as many models are unproven or there is little information available about their accuracy. As these simulation models become… CONTINUE READING
