Activity and agent-based modelling for transport planning

About this event

Activity and agent-based models (ABM) for simulating transportation systems have attracted significant attention in recent years. A growing amount of academic research has demonstrated its advantages in modelling dynamic and complex interactions, capturing heterogeneity in the population, and testing a wide range of policies and systems. However, despite the potential benefits, its adoption in real-world practice is still limited in the UK, where the traditional four-step model remains the mainstream. This workshop aims to bridge this gap between research and practice by bringing together perspectives from academia and the industry. Using real-world examples both within and outside of the UK, the participants will together discuss its current challenges and identify a vision for its wider adoption.

Convened by: Dr Haitao He
