"Simulation of Urban MObility" (SUMO) is an open source, highly portable, microscopic traffic simulation package designed to handle large road networks and different modes of transport.
It is mainly developed by employees of the Institute of Transportation Systems at the German Aerospace Center.
You can download SUMO via our downloads site.
As the program is still under development and is extended continuously, we advice you to use the latest sources from our GitHub repository. Using a command line client the following command should work:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/eclipse-sumo/sumo
To stay informed, we have a mailing list for SUMO, which you can subscribe to. Messages to the list can be sent to email@example.com. SUMO announcements will be made through the firstname.lastname@example.org list; you can subscribe to it as well. For further contact information, have a look at this page.
For Windows we provide pre-compiled binaries and CMake files to generate Visual Studio projects. If you want to develop under Windows, please also clone the dependent libraries using
git clone --recursive https://github.com/DLR-TS/SUMOLibraries
If you're using Linux, you should have a look whether your distribution already contains sumo. There is also a ppa for ubuntu users and an open build service instance. If you want to build sumo yourself, the steps for ubuntu are:
sudo apt-get install cmake python g++ libxerces-c-dev libfox-1.6-dev libgdal-dev libproj-dev libgl2ps-dev swig cd <SUMO_DIR> # please insert the correct directory name here export SUMO_HOME="$PWD" mkdir build/cmake-build && cd build/cmake-build cmake ../.. make -j$(nproc)
To get started with SUMO, take a look at the docs/tutorial and examples directories, which contain some example networks with routing data and configuration files. There is also user documentation provided in the docs/ directory and on the homepage.
- The main documentation is at sumo.dlr.de/docs. Note, that this tracks the development version.
- A mirror of the main documentation is at sumo.sourceforge.net/docs.
- An offline version of the documentation is part of every release and can be accessed via
