Transportation and individual mobility are key aspects of liveable cities. So integrated urban planning benefits from open tools covering the traffic side of live for instance by simulating traditional planning tasks as well as new concepts including communicating and automated vehicles in public and private transport. Eclipse SUMO (Simulation of Urban Mobility) is such an open source microscopic traffic simulator. It has been developed by the German Aerospace Center since 2001. In this talk, SUMO and its capabilities for the realistic simulation of cars, busses, bikes, pedestrians, trains and even ships in cities, such as Berlin, are presented in an overview. We will present also recent efforts in simulating new kinds of public transport and vehicle communication (also with a small tutorial if wished). All actions are integrated in the newly founded Eclipse openMobility working group whose upcoming projects will be presented as well.
