(2008) Agent-based simulation of travel demand: Structure and computational performance of MATSim-T. paper presented at the 2nd TRB Conference on Innovations in Travel Modeling, Portland, June 2008
The model toolkit MATSim-T provides a variety of tools and resulting approaches to model travel demand and traffic flow and their interactions. The currently preferred configuration is presented in this paper together with detailed information about its computational performance. The application is small in comparison with the abilities of the system, but as computing times scale approximately linearly for the system it gives an idea of how the system can be used for practical planning studies: a 10% sample of the travellers in the Greater Zürich Area (190’000 agents). The outlook highlights the next steps of the development.
