Congratulations to our researchers from the Area-Interlinking Design Analysis team who received the Best Paper Award at the "22nd International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT)" held in Madrid in October.
This symposium, now in its 22nd iteration, serves as a forum for both academia and industry to present recent research results in the domain of distributed simulation.
Our award-winning paper explores possibilities to substantially improve the performance of traffic simulation by using not just conventional processors (CPUs) but also incorporating graphics cards (GPUs). One method is to compute parts of the traffic simulation both on CPU and GPU. Additionally, we show how the simulation can be moved to the GPU entirely, significantly increasing the simulation speed.
