    In recent years, the transport simulation of large road networks has become far more rapid and detailed, and many exciting developments in this field have emerged. In this perspective, the authors describe the simulation of automobile, pedestrian and rail traffic, coupled to new applications, such as the embedding of traffic simulation into driving simulators, to give a more realistic environment of driver behavior surrounding the subject vehicle. New approaches to traffic simulation are described, including the hybrid mesoscopic-microscopic model and floor-field agent-based simulation. The book has been written by an invited panel of experts, thus covering the relevant sub-disciplines, and is addresed to students, engineers, and scholars, as well as those who require a state-of-the-art overview of traffic simulation today.
