Optimization and network wide analysis of traffic signal control
VSP - TU Berlin,
Analyzes the interaction between traffic signal control and users’
behavior from two perspectives: optimization of traffic assignment and signal control in a mathematical model (by BTU Cottbus) and evaluation of the impact of signal control optimization on travelers’ behavior using MATSim (by VSP).
Currently analyzing simulation parameter and signal influences in small scenarios like Braess's paradox and the inner city of Cottbus, especially regarding route choice and travel time.

In this work, Transit demand is generated by exploiting the smart card revealed daily transaction records. In the first step, trip segments are converted into trip chains followed by the INFERENCE OF ACTIVITY TYPES. A set of rules are defined by using socio-demographic profile (Household Travel Survey Data, 2010) to assign activity purpose. Daily itineraries of agents' are then converted into MATSim demand and calibrated with HHTSD.
