This course zooms out from microscopic simulation to look at larger scale modeling. You’ll learn about the event-based mesoscopic model and how to combine it with a more detailed time-sliced microsimulator.
Then you’ll get to experiment with static macroscopic modelling, which is often used as a preliminary step to dynamic modeling to extract the demand of a subarea from a regional model, to adjust and time-slice it, and to get an initial set of paths to warm-start dynamic assignment.
Mesoscopic network loading
Mesoscopic vehicle behavior
Calibration of a mesoscopic model
Hybrid microscopic-mesoscopic simulation
Static traffic assignment
Traversal demand calculation
