Computer simulation of tra c is a widely used method in research of tra c modelling,
planning and development of tra c networks and systems. Vehicular tra c systems are of
growing concern and interest globally and modelling arbitrarily complex tra c systems is a
hard problem. In this article we review some of the tra c simulation software applications,
their features and characteristics as well as the issues these applications face. Additionally, we
introduce some algorithmic ideas, underpinning data structural approaches and quanti able
metrics that can be applied to simulated model systems.
