We have a chronic traffic congestion problem here in our small twin island state of Tirinidad and Tobago. For quite some time, I’ve been blabbing my gums, complaining to myself and those around who would listen that one method that I have not heard talked about was the use of software simulation so to map traffic and simulate various configurations on the road (pun intended) to finding a solution.
Here is some software that can us to create traffic models: http://www.caliper.com/transmodeler/Simulation.htm#.UwTRjnmYY6Y
Here are some very interesting thought and points thoughts from Jonas Eliasson on how to solve Traffic Jams
Maybe I’ll add some more thoughts on to this … just a quick brain dump.
