[…] and simulate their behavior to find aggregated macro-scale results. most bottom–up approaches are micro-scale agent-based car-following models; prominent examples are the open source projects matsim [] and sumo [] or the commercially available software vissim []. the downside of such detailed bottom–up approaches is that they need a lot of input data, in some cases complete […]

[…] available from mendeley . the detailed document type definition (dtd), which contains the declarations that describes the formal acceptable structure of the xml file, is available on, the generic multilayered network formulation is based on the notation presented in . this formulation is then adapted for this specific scenario […]

[…] and emissions. we model activity-based mobility plans of inhabitants with private cars and simulate them on quito’s transport network using the microscopic multi agent transport simulator (matsim) []. we concentrate on the optimization of a large number of traffic lights deployed on a wide area of the city and study their impact on travel time, emissions and fuel consumption. a proper […]

[…] analysis would require to include the street network as the land layer and some information that might be harder to find -such as traffic light or mobility patterns- or specialized software like matsim, but that is beyond the scope of this study. concluding, the proposed model can be used for a first diagnosis of the state of any urban transportation network using publicly available […]

[…] assumption. for example, jha et al. [] assume drivers are provided with travel time information on five shortest paths when investigating day-to-day dynamics using dynasmart. some models such as matsim [] applied rum models on a pre-determined choice set generated by the k-shortest path algorithms []. the number of alternatives and their generation process is arbitrary and depends […]
