Traffic Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation

The Traffic Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation (TAMS) PFS is intended to serve as a forum and provide an opportunity for the participants to identify, address, and collectively tackle key issues and challenges that are common among public agencies in conducting, managing, and/or approving traffic analysis and simulation studies. The TAMS PFS will address key technical and programmatic traffic analysis issues through the investigation and development of best practices, lessons learned, and recommended guidelines or methodologies. The TAMS PFS will also provide an opportunity to facilitate the interaction, sharing of information, and exchange of knowledge with a broader audience to advance and improve upon the current state-of-the-practice related to the usage, management, and/or approval of traffic analysis and simulation tools. The goal of this study is to improve the state-of-the-practice in traffic analysis, modeling, and simulation to enable public agencies to make the best possible transportation investment decisions based upon high-quality traffic analyses. The objectives of this study are to assemble federal, state, regional, and local agencies to: (1) identify challenges and issues common among those responsible for conducting, managing, and/or approving traffic analysis and simulation studies; (2) suggest approaches to address identified challenges; (3) initiate and monitor projects intended to address identified challenges and issues; (4) develop and disseminate noteworthy practices, recommendations, and results; and (5) promote and facilitate technology transfer related to traffic analysis and simulation issues nationally.
