Bi-Weekly Talk: Individual Traffic Simulation in Aachen via MATSim

Mittwoch, 10.10.2018, 10.30 Uhr

Ort: RWTH Aachen University, Informatikzentrum - Ahornstr. 55, Erweiterungsgebäude E3, Raum 9u10

Vortragender: Björn Tauer


Increasing traffic, deadbeat infrastructure with corresponding traffic congestion and environmental pollution are frequent candidates for daily news and displeasure. One approach to tackle these topics is an autonomous shuttle fleet. Such a shuttle fleet has the potential to decrease traffic congestion in city centers by substituting individual traffic but simultaneously increasing the mobility of all inhabitants. Operating such a fleet causes several optimization problems in design and management. Since such a system does not exist for Aachen yet, we try to gain some information about how customers will react to service parameters via simulation. So we try to minimize the uncertainties a fleet provider has to face before enrolling such a service.
