Guest lecture: Traffic flow simulation using mesoscopic approach

On November 22, 2017, at 18:00, Mihails Savrasovs, Dean of the Computer Science and Telecommunication Faculty, Transport and Telecommunication Institute (TTI) Riga, Latvia, will give a lecture entitled “Traffic flow simulation using mesoscopic approach” at the premises of the Department of Civil Engineering of University of Thessaly. The lecture is organized within the undergraduate course of Department of Civil Engineering “Design and evaluation of transportation systems”.

Annotation of the lecture:

Microscopic and macroscopic traffic flow simulation approaches are widely used and are well known to researchers and practitioners. However, both approaches present a number of disadvantages, that limits their application. A feasible solution is the application of the mesoscopic approach for traffic flow simulation.

The lecture will deliver: a) a presentation of the mesoscopic approach for traffic flow simulation based on a Discrete Rate paradigm b) a demonstration of the validation results of the proposed approach, c) a case-study of the proposed approach.

Lecture structure: 45 minutes +15 minutes for Q&A
