Microsimulation Modeling Research in Canada

This paper presents a status report concerning on-going research work by a team of Canadian researchers to develop a microsimulation-based, integrated model of urban land use and transportation. The paper briefly discusses the microsimulation approach to modeling dynamic, complex systems, in which the behavior of individual actors/agents is simulated over time and space. It then describes in some detail the overall design and current status of the ILUTE (Integrated Land Use, Transportation, Environment) modeling system under development. The overall purpose of ILUTE is to simulate the evolution of an entire urban region over an extended period of time. Such a model is intended to replace conventional, aggregate, static models for the analysis of a broad range of transportation, housing and other urban policies.
