A Multiscale Simulation Platform for Connected and Automated Transportation Systems
A Multiscale Simulation Platform for Connected and Automated Transportation Systems Overview Traffic simulation is an important tool that can assist researchers, analysts, and policymakers to test vehicle/traffic control algorithms, gain insights of micro/macro traffic dynamics, and design traffic management strategies. However, different implementations require different simulation scales and there is no multiscale simulation platform that…
