Next Generation Simulation (NGSIM)) Core Algorithms and Data Sets

The objective of this project is to develop a core of open behavioral algorithms in support of microscopic traffic simulation, with supporting documentation and validation data sets that describe the interactions of multi-modal travelers, vehicles and highway systems, and interactions presented to them from traffic control devices, delineation, congestion and other features of the environment. These products will be openly distributed and made freely available to the broad transportation community.
