Re: [sumo-user] Truck / Trailer GUI Shape Settings

correction: at it's taxi default of 5m even.

The following gui shapes are articulated:
- all rail shapes
- bus/flexible
- truck/trailer
- truck/semitrailer

locomotiveLength is the length of the first part and carriageLength is the length of the rest. The number of carriages is deduced from the 'length' attribute.
carriageGap is the gap between the parts.
Your trailer looks unusual because the length is still at it's truck-default of 7.1m.

Dear SUMO Team,


thank you so much for the quick response to my previous question.

I have another question concerning the GUI Shape Settings of Trucks /Trailers


    <vType id="taxi" vClass="taxi" guiShape="truck/trailer">

        <param key="" value="true"/>

        <param key="carriageLength" value="1"/>

        <param key="carriageGap" value="1"/>

        <param key="locomotiveLength" value="1"/>



In SUMO 1.15.0 the Truck is displayed as shown in the image below and I don’t understand how this settings work.

Is there a documentation on these parameters, because I couldn’t find any?


Best regards,
