Mobility Simulation Tool for the City of Barcelona and traffic light optimization
Barcelona City Council
The objectives of the project were the development of a decision making tool (simulation tool) to improve the mobility of Barcelona and traffic light optimization. It provides a framework for the evaluation of the mobility measures to achieve sustainable mobility. On the other hand it allows a better traffic light regulation to improve public transport, private vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle mobility. The tool is based on a macroscopic and microscopic model. It will simulate the set of different modes of transport of the city, including the traffic light, public transport, private vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle. The architecture of the tool is based on the integration and improvement of some of the software currently in the market.
The team at CENIT provided the following services:
- Definition of scenarios and execution of them with the subsequent analysis of the results.
- Development of external applications to implement automations and complex external functionalities, such as optimization of traffic light configuration.
- Preparation of results reports and user manuals and installation of the simulation tool.
- Simulation of the set of different modes of transport within the city, including traffic lights, public transport, private vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle.
