Mega Cities and growing urban areas face a growing risk of daily traffic collapse. To ensure individual mobility and improve the life quality in urban areas, an advanced prescriptive traffic management is needed. The latter has to accurately predict the impact of traffic policies and optimize the traffic flow in cities. Here we focus on the first crucial step, the accurate prediction of traffic, which has a huge potential to improve routing and builds the foundation of any prescriptive traffic management.
We envision to combine the expertise in the domain of traffic
models - provided by Prof. Kai Nagel and his group - with the
capability to measure traffic with a high precision - provided by
TomTom with its award-winning LiveTraffic service. The traffic model
is based on the very successful open-source framework MATSim which
allows to model traffic on macroscopic scales using an agent-based
(microscopic) approach. The main goal of the master thesis is to
evaluate MATSim speed predictions using TomTom-LiveTraffic data as
ground truth. Furthermore, it will be investigated how TomTom data can
be fed into MATSim simulations to improve the prediction.
