Abstract
After successfully developing open source traffic simulation software, ETFOMM (Enhanced Transportation Flow Open-source Microscopic Models), New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management Corp. proposes a US DOT SBIR program to support its efforts to accelerating the commercialization of the software to educational and research communities in Phase IIB. The specific tasks include educational and research market studies, educational courseware development, adding necessary features to fit the research and educational needs and enhancing features to support US DOT's future R & D. After fulfillment of the Phase IIB, ETFOMM will have traffic signal controller software/hardware-in-the-loop simulation, DSRC communication-in-the-loop simulation, simulated Basic Safety Message, and mixed-Scopic traffic simulation (interfacing with open source TEXAS model and a dynamic traffic simulation software). In addition, many existing features and logics such as intersection movement, transit, managed lanes, incidents, work zones, special events and so forth will be enhanced. ETFOMM's state-of-the-art, cross platform application programming interface will be updated. Finally, ETFOMM will be extended to interface with EPA's MOVES and other FHWA's Models.
