Cellular Automata are a reputable formal support for traffic modelling and simulation. STRATUNA is a Cellular Automata model for simulating the evolution of two/three lane highways. It encodes the wide specification of driver's response to the events in his sight range. Encouraging comparison between simulated events and their corresponding in the reality bring to the specification of a theoretical general model characterized by an increased expression power and a significantly deeper forecasting potential, whose application fields are numerous and varied. Fair results in flow forecasting lead to the implementation of an established cost system in which simulation directly provides cost forecasting in terms of congestion toll.
