Creating an integrated agent-based travel demand model by combining mobiTopp and MATSim

In the past years, the travel demand model mobiTopp has undergone substantial developments towards a full agent-based travel demand model. Until now, mobiTopp covers the generation of a synthetic population with synthetically generated activity plans, different models for ownership of cars or transit passes, destination choice models for long- and short-term destinations, and various mode choice models. However, it still does not contain a dynamic traffic assignment procedure for motorized traffic. On the other side, MATSim’s origin is a traffic flow simulation used for a dynamic traffic assignment, and in the past years, extensions for destination and mode choice have been developed on a fundamental or experimental basis. As the strengths of both models are in different parts of a travel demand model, it suggests itself to combine both instead of redeveloping the missing parts in both models. Therefore, this paper presents our approach of integrating mobiTopp and MATSim to build a full travel demand model.
