Abstract

Computer simulation has become a widely used tool in transportation engineering with a variety of applications from scientific research to traffic planning and traffic management strategies evaluation. In this paper we present a Corsim-based simulation framework that illustrates the use of a microscopic traffic simulator to model an evacuation operation driven by real-time control strategies. The framework was developed to assess the performance of a set of evacuation algorithms previously proposed as part of a Smart Traffic Evacuation Management System (STEMS). Therefore, our proposed simulation framework will be presented in the context of STEMS.
