We present the interactive Java-based open-source traffic simulator available at In contrast to most closed-source commercial simulators, the -focus is on investigating fundamental issues of traffic -dynamics rather than simulating specific road networks. This includes testing theories for the spatiotemporal evolution of traffic jams, comparing and testing different microscopic -traffic models, modeling the effects of driving styles and traffic rules on the efficiency and stability of traffic flow, and investigating novel ITS technologies such as adaptive cruise control, inter-vehicle and vehicle-infrastructure communication.
