Abstract: Modern road traffic control systems become more complex with each year due to the growing number of cars, demand for more optimized road network designs, and desire to decrease road traffic delays at the intersections during rush hours because of the constantly growing metropolitan area and hence the need of moving farther away across the city. Therefore, a need is very much relevant nowadays for technologies, which can help build more optimal and intelligent road traffic control systems, which in turn will help optimize already existing road network designs. With the help of computer modeling software, it is possible to recreate already existing segments of road network, and by implementing control logic, it is possible to observe how control system and road traffic would react to various changes. This paper looks at how computer modeling software (namely SUMO) can help with the validation of road traffic control system changes without the risks of road traffic accidents caused by manipulation of real control systems.
