Im doing HND in Software Engineering and submitted my final project proposal for a Traffic Simulation system.
Though I have a sound knowledge in Java, I don't know where to start and what to do first. I submitted the proposal with an anxious on the topic. Could anyone please show me the right direction.
Thanks in advance.

If you can provide us a few details of what you have in mind when you say Traffic Simulation, we can offer some suggestions.

It still does not throw any light on what you exactly need,
we cannot help you if we dont know what exactly you need...

Do you need an algorithm for generating traffic simulation ?

I agree. Here's the better link:

Thanks for taking your time to reply.

The thing is I can draw a road and a car in a picture. But I have no idea how to move a car along a track (to take curves and pass through junctions). Similarly it is impossible to determine the properties and methods of a car as well as to represent the road map as an Object.
I agree. Here's the link:
