Microsimulation: Department Assessment and Guidance

The research goal is to provide guidance and directions to improve the Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT's) microsimulation modeling practice. The specific objectives of this project are: (1) identification of the current and potential FDOT applications of transportation system simulation and associated needs; (2) assessment of existing simulation manuals and guidance in Florida and production of a new, comprehensive simulation guidance document that will serve as a standardized practice for FDOT; (3) assessment of the ability of available microsimulation platforms and applications to meet the simulation needs in Florida; (4) provision of direction for the application of multiresolution as part of the modeling practice in Florida; (5) exploration of the development of simulation modeling clearinghouse practices; (6) identification of the department training needs in relation to the use of transportation system simulation.
