Report no. CTS 97-08

This research investigates the feasibility of developing low-cost, personal computer-based parallel processing procedures that can be applicable to real time simulation of freeway flows. Specific objectives include: Development of a framework for PC-based parallel simulation system; Enhancements of existing freeway traffic models for parallel simulation; Development of a PC-based, parallel simulation algorithm for freeway flows; Development of a prototype version of a PC-based parallel simulation system; Performance evaluation of the PC-based parallel freeway simulation system.
