Re: [sumo-user] lane area detectors (E2)- moveTo issue

If a vehicle is already departed, then moveTo "teleports" the vehicle onto the edge.
Currently, detectors ignore vehicles that "teleport" onto an edge.
If the vehicle is not yet in the network when it receives the moveTo command then it counts as "departure" and detectors will take notice.
So itfyou only need to call moveTo once per vehicle, make sure the vehicle hasn't departed yet. (i.e. by setting a depart time that is the future).
calling moveTo will then force it into the network at the time of the call.

Hey guys,


is it a known issue that lane area detectors (E2) don’t always detect vehicles placed on them using the moveTo-command?

Do u see a way to get this fixed?


I use the commands to move vehicles to a corresponding E2 detector in front of a TLS, but without detection it’s like there is no vehicle waiting which I wanna simulate…

Even in later simulation steps the vehicle is not detected.

Is it the only way to not use moveTo to solve this problem?


Thanks in advance,
