On Discovering Road Traffic Information Using Virtual Reality Simulations

Transport systems play critical role inmodern day economies and are prime example of highlydynamic complex systems. Current traffic monitoringsystems do not provide timely and granular informationwhich could sufficiently meet system analysisrequirements. Simulation augmented with VirtualReality (VR) has emerged as an important methodologyto model and analyze transport systems. This paperreports our ongoing work on developing an open sourceroad traffic VR simulator based on microscopic and carfollowingmodels, designed using Java Monkey Engine.Subsequent to a brief literature review on trafficsimulations, we give a description of the simulatordesign, its functionality, and the driver behaviourmodels used in the simulator. We then simulate fewinteresting traffic scenarios and analyse traffic flow,speed, occupancy and other results produced by thesimulator. Finally, we conclude and outline the futurework.
