AGADE-TRAFFIC: Multi-Agent Simulations in Geographical Networks
  AGADE-TRAFFIC is a tool for simulating traffic flow in networks. Traffic participants are modelled as NetLogo agents and are visualised in a graphical user interface. Geographic information is stored in a graph database and AGADE-TRAFFIC communicates with that database through a NetLogo extension. Routing capabilities of the database are used while respecting the current traffic situation that is continuously reflected into the database. Different models of congestion effects are available and can be investigated in flexible traffic assignment models. Real world networks can be imported from Open Street Map. The tool allows the definition of specific cost and pricing schemes so that effects of selfish routing and social optimisation can be compared.
