The use of traffic models started with the optimisation of traffic signal control plans, but since then a lot of developments took place. Nowadays a wide range of traffic models is available to answer questions related to transport planning, traffic management and operations. An important question with traffic models is the validity of the model. Is the model suitable for the application and how well does the model represent real-life circumstances? These questions remain a source of research into traffic models.
