Agent-Based Transport Simulations
MATSim provides a framework to implement large-scale agent-based transport simulations. The framework consists of severel modules which can be combined or used stand-alone. Modules can be replaced by own implementations to test single aspects of your own work. Currently, MATSim offers a framework 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.
Key Features of MATSim
Comparison with counting stationsVisualize an agent's position, route, activity locations.
- Fast Dynamic and Agent-Based Traffic Simulation
Simulate whole days within minutes
- Private and Public Traffic
Both private cars and transit traffic can be simulated
- Supports Large Scenarios
MATSim can simulate millions of agents or huge, detailed networks
- Versatile Analyses and Simulation Output
E.g. compare simulated data to real-world counting stations
- Modular Approach
Easily extended with your own algorithms
- Interactive Visualizer
See what each agent is doing during the simulation
- Open Source
You get the Java Source Code, which runs on all major operating systems
- Active Development
We add constantly new features and improve current ones
