Research Institution

The major objective of this Phase II proposal is to establish open source traffic simulation model and software, and to develop application programming interfaces to accommodate future traffic research needs. Objectives will be accomplished by building and demonstrating FOMM, an open source traffic simulation model and software. Furthermore, to accommodate future research, new component-based Application Programming Interfaces based on the Phase I architecture are expected to be built, verified, and validated.
Phase II tasks will also address areas identified by the DOT SBIR 081-FH5 solicitation or recommended by Phase I final report.
Five major tasks with one major optional task are proposed to accomplish Phase II objectives. The system architecture developed in Phase I has built a solid foundation to systematically tackle the objectives in Phase II. Phase II will develop the open source prototype and a long-term maintenance plan. During the development, the research team will address the areas identified in the solicitation and Phase I final report.
