Create a Simulated Vehicle Network
The awesome Swisstrains has open-sourced all the code you need to create your own animated vehicle simulator with Google Maps.
Swisstrains use the timetables of the Swiss Federal Railways to create a simulated real-time map of the Swiss rail network. Using the map you can view the network's trains moving around Switzerland live on a Google Map.
Now you can create your own simulated vehicle simulator with the help of the code, available from GitHub. To create your own simulated network you will also need to plot your track / road network and the vehicle timetables in JSON format.
