Re: [sumo-user] Acceleration & Deceleration profiles for heavy vehicles

- the default carFollowModel Krauss does not support acceleration profiles (acceleration and deceleration are always flat).
- Other models such as IDM have tapering acceleration when approaching the desired speed but there is not straightforward way to calibrate the profile.
- grade can be defined via providing z-coordinates for the road geometry. See
- elevation/grade are factored into emission output and electricity consumption but ignored by most carFollowModels in regard to speeds/acceleration with the exception of 'KraussPS' (Krauss plus slope). However, this model has a known issue:

Hello All,
I am trying to find out if there is a way to add acceleration and deceleration profiles for heavy vehicles like trucks in simulation. I would also appreciate if someone can tell me whether SUMO takes account of the grade of the road segment and whether or not we can set a grade to our roadway segment in NETEDIT? 

Thank you,
Soumya Sharma
