MITSIMLab is an open-source simulation-based laboratory that was developed for evaluating the impacts of alternative traffic management system designs at the operational level and assisting in subsequent design refinement. Examples of systems that can be evaluated with MITSIMLab include advanced traffic management systems (ATMS) and route guidance systems. MITSIMLab was developed at the MIT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program. Professor Moshe Ben-Akiva, Director of the ITS Program at MIT, and Dr. Haris Koutsopoulos, from the Volpe Center, were co-principal investigators in MITSIMLab's development. Dr. Qi Yang, of MIT and Caliper Corporation, was the principal developer.
DynaMIT is a state-of-the-art, real-time computer system designed to effectively support the operation of Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) and Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) at a Traffic Management Center (TMC). Sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), with Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) as the program manager, DynaMIT was the result of several years of intense research and development by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Intelligent Transportation Systems Program.
SimMoblity is the simulation platform of the Future Urban Mobility Research Group at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) that aims to serve as the nexus of Future Mobility research evaluations. It integrate various mobility-sensitive behavioral models with state-of-the-art scalable simulators to predict the impact of mobility demands on transportation networks, intelligent transportation services and vehicular emissions. The platform enables the simulation of the effects of a portfolio of technology, policy and investment options under alternative future scenarios. Specifically, SimMobility encompasses the modeling of millions of agents, from pedestrians to drivers, from phones and traffic lights to GPS, from cars to buses and trains, from second-by-second to year-by-year simulations, across entire countries.
