Agent-Based Transport Simulations | MATSim

Agent-Based Transport Simulations | MATSim | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

We use Matsim along with our own tools for traffic modelling and simulation. MATSim provides a toolbox to implement large-scale agent-based transport simulations. The toolbox consists of severel modules which can be combined or used stand-alone.  Currently, MATSim offers a toolbox for demand-modeling, agent-based mobility-simulation (traffic flow simulation), re-planning, a controler to iteratively run simulations as well as methods to analyze the output generated by the modules.
