GSMST Traffic Congestion Simulator

A few words from the participant(s)

What steps did you take to develop your project?

In our process of project development, we first came up with the idea to solve the school congestion problem since it bothers all GSMST students in their daily lives. We conducted research about the causes & effects of congestion and researched existing solutions to traffic congestion around schools. Then, we decided to test the feasibility of these possible solutions because not all solutions apply to GSMST and the available cost is limited. Based on this clearer goal, we constructed the simulation on the Anylogic simulation program, learning the functions of the program and solving problems and errors throughout the testing process. Finishing the construction of the simulation, we applied the solution of constructing a new road to open another entrance for vehicles to drop off students. The conclusion arose from the data analysis and observations, proving that this solution was effective and feasible.

Why are you competing?

Our project should be picked to compete because it managed to solve a common problem that directly affects us all in our daily lives to a certain extent. Traffic congestion is such a common problem that frustrates everyone, and numerous existing ineffective solutions to the congestion problem consume an unnecessarily large amount of money and effort. The simulation can also be applied to predict the effectiveness of solutions to congestion problems in other regions accordingly beside GSMST.
