Admission information

Objectives

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to use the MATSim software to model travel demand to support transport planning in any area. The students learn how to deal with scientific open source software and data. The link between state-of-the-art transport modeling and computer science will be demonstrated.

Description

This course will cover the following topics: - Microscopic agent-based models - Generation of transport networks from open source data - Generation of activity-based demand - Implementation of simple example scenarios - Implementation and simulation of large-scale scenarios - Analysis of scenario results and comparison to traditional transport modeling approaches

Prerequisites

Transport Planning Models (240744419) by Gebhard Wulfhorst and Chenyi Ji Object Oriented Programming for Transport Engineers (0000004621)

Teaching and learning methods

An alternation between theoretical background lectures and practical approaches where students complete real-world tasks in groups with the support of the tutor(s). During the course, students will learn how to use the modeling software on their own computers.
