Learning Outcomes

This class teaches in-depth knowledge in - using, - planning - developing agent based transport simulations based on MATSim (www.matsim.org). Students will be able to use Java Inject syntax, use version control (git) and continuous integration. Furthermore up-to date result visualization, a good standard in setting up simulation experiments and an in depth knowledge in current MATSim topics will be discussed.


This class is highly based on mutual experimenting / lab work. Please bring your own laptop to work with (we might be able to borrow some devices, if required).
