Communication Protocol for Distributed Traffic Simulation

The road traffic density on highways and especially in cities is permanently increasing. An important tool, which can be used for analysis and controlling of traffic networks, is the computer simulation. However, in order to be performed in suitable time, a detailed simulation of a large traffic network (e.g. whole city) requires a great amount of computational power. A way how to obtain sufficient power for the simulation is to adapt it for distributed computing environment. One of the main bottlenecks of every distributed application is the inter-process communication.

The main aim of this project ist the design of an efficient communication protocol for distributed traffic simulation. Although the developed protocol is tested on the JUTS system, the final verison of the protocol should be applicable for general distributed time-stepped simulation.
