Agent-Based Transport Simulations
MATSim provides a framework to implement large-scale agent-based transport simulations. The framework consists of several modules which can be combined or used stand-alone. Modules can be replaced by custom 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
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
Easily extended with your own algorithms
You get the Java Source Code, which runs on all major operating systems
The international MATSim community constantly adds new features and improves current ones
