Abstract: This paper deals with a spatiotemporal traffic events generator for real highway networks. The goal is to use the event generator to test real-time and batch traffic analysis applications. In this context, we represent a highway network as an oriented graph based on the geographic data of the different sensors locations. The traffic is generated based on a socio-cultural calendar using a virtual clock to speed up the simulation process. In order to enable our generator to support the global worldwide highway networks, we propose a dynamic sized distributed architecture based on multi-agent systems. In this platform, we distinguish the physical model based on sensors from the logical model based on an oriented graph. The architecture of the simulator and the results of some of its implementations applied to the Moroccan highway network are presented.
