Abstract

This work describes the development of a traffic model for simulators of vehicles, pedestrians, traffic signs and traffic lights within an urban environment. The model must optimize its capacities between difficult and opposing requirements such as the mandatory nature to produce results in real time, the high number of vehicles and pedestrians that must be simultaneously simulated, the most realistic reproduction of the vehicle’s physical behaviour, the development of a driver behaviour model and the traffic light control. In order to conciliate all these requirements several lines of action have been taken simultaneously, such as the simplified and ordered representation of the lanes that make up streets and traffic islands, keeping interactions between drivers to the minimum, reducing the physical model of a vehicle to what is
