In this paper we present a traffic simulation system using traffic data gathered from readings by GPS devices installed on board of busses, i.e., busses running on the road are used as a mobile sensor network. Traffic data are inferred from the comparison of data about normal speed and current speed in a certain position. The simulation system was developed to invent mechanisms that use such information for traffic optimization. In particular, simulations allow to manage traffic lights in real time and to control the traffic system in order to give priority to public transportation systems.
