Using MATSim to simulate truck traffic flow in NYC
ARISE students worked with graduate researchers and faculty guidance to develop a simulation using MATSim and real-world, NYCDOT data. The project tested policy
changes and their impacts by making credible predictions about the outcome of certain policy decisions enabling more informed policy decisions.
