Re: [sumo-user] Modeling a cable car/gondola system

Hi Griffin,

I would model the cabins as a railway or tramway with a loop (and no level crossings) and two stations. For railways you need some dummy signals to get the right headway.

Derive a vehicle class which can hold 10 persons and a fixed schedule. With some buffer time you should be able to have a constant flow of gondolas.

You can also use two separate tracks with a schedule like in this tutorial

What do you want to simulate?

- The overall performance of such a system? 

- The queuing at the stations?

- the intermodal usage of walk, buses, gondolas etc.?

@Mirko: Thanks for the link to the proceedings 2017!

Regards, Harald

Hi Griffin,


I can't remember any study focusing on cable cars in SUMO. Some work which may have something in common was this one: "Personal Rapid Transit simulations with SUMO" (p. 102). There is no dedicated vehicle class for cable cars either.


Best regards

Hi sumo users,
I'm currently in the process of developing an urban cable car/gondola system in a Sumo simulation using existing functionalities. This concept is based on the existing urban cable car system found in La Paz. Before I get too deep into the development, I was curious if anyone else has attempted to do this, or if there is any documentation that might be helpful.
Thanks as always,
