Installing SUMO 0.22.0 in Linux Mint 64-bit Operating System

SUMO (Simulation of Urban MObility) is a free and open traffic simulation suite which is available since 2001. SUMO allows modelling of intermodal traffic systems including road vehicles, public transport and pedestrians. Included with SUMO is a wealth of supporting tools which handle tasks such as route finding, visualization, network import and emission calculation. SUMO can be enhanced with custom models and provides various APIs to remotely control the simulation.

The simulation platform SUMO offers many features:

  • Microscopic simulation - vehicles, pedestrians and public transport are modeled explicitly
  • Online interaction – control the simulation with TraCI
  • Simulation of multimodal traffic, e.g., vehicles, public transport and pedestrians
  • Time schedules of traffic lights can be imported or generated automatically by SUMO
  • No artificial limitations in network size and number of simulated vehicles
  • Supported import formats: OpenStreetMap, VISUM, VISSIM, NavTeq
  • SUMO is implemented in C++ and uses only portable libraries

Installation Steps

Step 1 : Download the latest version of SUMO from here.

Step 2 : Install the necessary packages by entering the following commands
