Objectives After passing this course successfully, students will be able to:

  • Apply computer software tools to plan, design, and operate transportation systems
  • Design large road networks
  • Set up the conditions for intermodal simulation
  • Design and implement simulation scenarios
  • Plan and assess different applications in fields such as for example: traffic management, infrastructure changes, new technologies in transport (e.g. vehicular communication, automated transport systems)
Subject This seminar aims at providing insights into the field of simulation in transportation to perform experimental studies, testing of new technologies and demonstrate present and future scenarios. Microscopic traffic simulators allow comparison and testing of various existing or new street configurations or equipment. Therefore, they allow deciding how street design arrangements or new technologies are seen and comprehended by the drivers, and which driving behaviour they produce. The acceptance of these arrangements by the users determine traffic safety. Traffic scenarios will be defined and tested within the seminar to obtain results that will be compiled in a scientific paper. The paper will be presented during the seminar. Groups will be built during the class.
