Postdoctoral Associate – SimMobility (Ref: IRG_FM_2011_004)
Future Urban Mobility Interdisciplinary Research Group
SimMobility is an integrated system of mobility sensitive simulation models to evaluate future urban transportation scenarios. It aims to integrate and link together various mobility-sensitive behavioural models with state-of-the-art simulators to predict the impacts of mobility demands on transportation networks, services and vehicular emissions.
The postdoctoral associate on this project will work on developing a simulation platform integrating mobility demands on transportation, vehicular emissions, land use and energy consumption.
This will involve:
Software structure design for short-term, medium-term and long-term integrated simulator, based on the models developed for each module.
Developing the agent-based simulation platform.
Integrating the behavioural models and travel demand models into the platform.
Link the short-term, medium-term and long-term simulation to form an overall simulator.
SimMobility will make it possible to simulate the effects of a portfolio of technology, policy and investment options under alternative future scenarios.
