Traffic Simulation Lab

There are four objective for this project. The first is to increase the availability of courses in the area of traffic flow simulation modeling, thus increasing the number of people trained in the use of simulation models and increasing the number of qualified staff available to both public agencies and the private sector.  The second is to decrease the time and cost required by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), PSRC, and other jurisdictions to apply simulation models for a wide range of traffic analysis within the state and region. The third is to perform specific simulation analysis for WSDOT, PSRC, and other agencies participating in the simulation lab. The fourth objective of this project is to provide the analytical capabilities required to improve simulation model functionality.
