Research project within TUM CREATE. Focussing on modelling and optimisation of architecture and infrastructure, urban systems simulation like traffic and power are the main research interests. Apart from that, a cognitive systems group deal with human computer interaction. 


Area-Interlinking Design Analysis

The goal of the Area-Interlinking Design Analysis (AIDA) group is to push the boundaries of what mobility simulation can do, develop and analyse innovative intelligent transport system solutions, and bring together the real and simulated world to form a symbiotic simulation environment.

Our research revolves around our established simulator CityMoS. It is a high-performance, parallel, microscopic, agent-based traffic simulator which can simulate days of traffic in megacities.

Its interactive user interface enables researchers as well as non-domain experts to meaningfully interact with the simulation environment and effortlessly identify regions of interest.

CityMoS provides open interfaces to connect it to other simulators and real-world data. This turns CityMoS into a citybrain — a platform to monitor, predict, and evaluate control strategies for smooth traffic in future smart cities.
