A Traffic Simulation Tool for Assessing Smart City Policies (CitScale)


The CitScale visualization and analytics platform has proven to be very practical in supporting the results analyses for different experimental designs. The designs applied here incorporated different traffic simulation models for various purposes. A project for probe vehicle data assessment has been incorporated into CitScale, as well as another project that focuses roughly on analyzing the impact of emissions in the Eixample on KPIs, specifically when the city shifts to more green modes such as bicycles or electric vehicles. A further development for improving demand modeling in CitScale will provide representations of activity -based demand. This flexible tool will save a lot of time for traffic analysts and future transportation projects at the UPC.
