PoliVisu Webinar on Traffic Modelling

By Pashx / Updated: 09 Sep 2020

Transportation systems are facing many changes caused by the introduction of disruptive technologies and services. Modeling has long been used to measure the impact of these and other changes (e.g. new policies, land development) on local traffic conditions. Given that the new age of mobility is upon us, the way we analyse our transportation network must change, too. Specifically, transport modeling should become more agile and experimental, leveraging new data sources and advanced technologies to deliver insightful results to decision makers.

Traffic Modeller (TraMod) is a server based solution for regional traffic modeling that provides insights for better mobility management by predicting future traffic based on simulated road conditions. By listening to this webinar, you will learn how TraMod uses different schemas to calculate traffic volumes in near real-time, and how calculations can be modified according to different user-defined scenarios e.g. adding a new lane or closing an existing one. Additionally, PoliVisu experts will explain what inputs are needed to run the tool, and what benefits one can expect to get from its use. The latter will be demonstrated using real-life case studies from three cities: Pilsen, Frantovky and Mechelen.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 769608.
