At a Glance

The Irish SUMO user workshop is an informal forum that focuses on bringing together the Irish SUMO user community and providing a networking forum for the sharing of ideas and experiences of using this simulation software in vehicular transportation research.

Attendees who do not currently use SUMO but are interested in exploring whether it could be of use in their respective research areas are welcome to attend.

The workshop is arranged around SUMO tutorial sessions (beginner and advanced), keynote speeches, informal oral presentations outlining results or solutions obtained using the software and discussions.

Simulation of Urban MObility

Traffic simulation is of immense importance for researchers as well as practitioners in the field of transportation. The open source Simulation for Urban MObility (SUMO) software project has been available since 2001 and provides a wide range of traffic planning and simulation features. It has been developed by the Institute of Transportation Systems at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and is the leading open source traffic and mobility simulator.

SUMO provides a suite of tools covering road network imports and enrichment, demand generation and assignment and a state-of-the-art microscopic traffic simulation capable of simulating private and public transport modes. As SUMO is open source, it is also possible to implement new behavioral models or to control the simulation remotely using various programming environments.

These and other features make SUMO one of the most popular traffic simulators, with a large and international user community.

Further information about SUMO can be found at the project's webpage located at:
