Project Details

Project Description: 

The vision of this research emanates from an indepth understanding of both the limitation of existing traffic analysis capabilities and the potential advantage of a paradigm that creates synergy by integrating the simulation-based traffic analysis models and the agent-based simulation models.

Goals

The key project objective is to integrate the agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS) approaches seamlessly with emerging traffic simulation models to explore and expand new modeling capabilities.
