Comparison of SimTraffic and VISSIM Microscopic Traffic Simulation Tools in Modeling Roundabouts
MetadataShow full item record
Abstract SimTraffic and VISSIM are two microscopic traffic simulation tools that are capable of modeling arterial roads with signalized intersections and roundabouts. This study compares the performance of the two simulation tools in modeling dual lane and triple lane roundabouts under different scenarios such as traffic volume, proportion of left turning movement, and proportion of trucks in the traffic flow. The two simulation tools did not show statistically significant difference in general. However; in the case of high traffic volumes, VISSIM showed higher average delays than those from SimTraffic compared to nearly identical results in the case of low traffic volumes.
