Professor Moshe Ben-Akiva will host a one-week ITS course at MIT this summer. The program studies traffic models and simulation methods and their applications to the design, evaluation and operation of Intelligent Transportation Systems. Topics include origin-destination estimation and prediction for on-line applications; dynamic traffic assignment methods for planning and real-time systems; traffic flow models; traffic control and guidance systems; and off-line evaluation methods using traffic simulation. The program includes software demonstrations and examples from recent applications, and is intended for analysts, engineers, managers and planners, as well as industry, government and academic researchers. Participants with backgrounds in diverse areas such as traffic engineering, systems engineering, transportation planning, operations management, operations research and control systems are welcome. Lectures will be given by an international panel of professors who have studied, in-depth, all aspects of traffic modeling and simulation.
