Traffic and Network Simulation Environment

Overview

TraNS (Traffic and Network Simulation Environment) is a GUI tool that integrates traffic and network simulators (SUMO and ns2) to generate realistic simulations of Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs). TraNS allows the information exchanged in a VANET to influence the vehicle behavior in the mobility model. For example, when a vehicle broadcasts information reporting an accident, some of the neighboring vehicles may slow down.

TraNSLite is a stripped-down version of TraNS suitable for quickly generating realistic mobility traces for ns2 from SUMO.

The development of TraNS is suspended. Hence, TraNS does not support the latest version of both Sumo and ns2. Currently, we cannot provide any support regarding TraNS. If you wish to perform VANET simulations with up to date software packages, please check the links from the 'Related'->'Projects' list.

Downloads

If you are interested only in generating mobility traces for ns2, you should use TraNSLite (compatible up to SUMO 0.10). Check a screenshot.

The main features of TraNSLite are:

If you are interested in the interactive TraNS v1.2, please check first the README file (TraNS is not compatible with the latest version of SUMO). The main features of TraNS v1.2 are:
