Abstract

Traffic simulation is the mathematical modeling of transportation systems (e.g., freeway junctions, arterial routes, roundabouts, etc.) through the application of computer software to better help plan, design and operate transportation systems. Simulation in transportation is important because it can study models too complicated for analytical or numerical treatment, can be used for experimental studies, can study detailed relations that might be lost in analytical or numerical treatment and can produce attractive visual demonstrations of present and future scenarios. The objective of this research paper is to obtain basic calibration for the simulation of traffic condition and to justify VISSIM as reliable source in modelling traffic behaviour and serve to improve decision making in balancing the need of traffic.
