HIPERTRANS (High Performance Transport network modelling and Simulation) is a fast and visually representative simulator that can predict traffic on a given urban road network. It was designed using object-oriented techniques and by re-engineering established road traffic models. It has the capability of interfacing to a range of UTC (urban traffic control) systems. Its high performance version was implemented by using a novel parallel programming platform called SPIDER; it has the capability of executing faster than real time and runs on distributed processors. The simulator provides a powerful GUI (graphical user interface) for entering road network models, configuring simulation runs, and visualising simulation results. The system provides helpful traffic diagnostic tools enabling local transport authorities, policy makers, researchers, and UTC manufacturers to gainfully exploit its functionality. The HIPERTRANS project was funded by the European Commission under the 4th Framework programme.
