NYU Students Learn to Predict the Effects of Pandemics on Transportation Networks Using Agent-Based Simulation

NYU Students Learn to Predict the Effects of Pandemics on Transportation Networks Using Agent-Based Simulation In a recent class, NYU Tandon graduate students learned how to create an agent-based simulation (ABS) model to predict the effects of pandemics using software called NetLogo, a java-based modeling and simulation tool. ABS models are micro-scale models that simulate…

C2SMART Urban Roadway Testbed in Brooklyn, New York

Overview C2SMART researchers from Rutgers University and NYU designed and constructed a new “smart roadway testbed” along the cantilevered section of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) in Brooklyn, New York.  This new testbed collect real-time data on truck loads using weigh-in-motion (WIM) sensors to measure their impact on the roadway. Due to the ineffectiveness of current…
