Eclipse SUMO

Simulate the Movement of all Vehicles and Pedestrians in a City

SUMO is a microscopic mobility simulator. It allows to build realistic traffic and mobility models of entire cities for a variety of application ares. It supports the modeling of pedestrians, bicycles, passenger cars, trucks, busses, trains and even ships. 

Application Areas:

  • Digital twins of smart cities
  • Testing automated driving functions
  • Traffic management and prediction
  • Development of (AI-based) traffic light control algorithms
  • Development of vehicle dispatchers for (on-demand) public transport systems
  • Evaluation of traffic (emissions, noise, …)

SUMO is not just a „player“ for mobility simulations. Instead it provides various tools to simplify the creation, execution and evaluation of simulation scenarios – thus becoming a versatile and extensible toolbox. 

SUMO is very fast since its simulation engine is written in C++. The code is platform independent and can be executed on Windows, Linux and OSX.  SUMO offers APIs to interface with a running simulation in C, C++, Python or Java. 

The initial development of SUMO was started in 2001 by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). SUMO is now a software project of the Eclipse Foundation. It is widely used as part of industrial and research applications and benefits from a very active community of international users from the industry and academia.

The co4e GmbH is a commercial service provider for SUMO. Our team consists of SUMO experts with profound knowledge and expertise regarding its software architecture and the application of traffic and mobility simulations in general.
