TRANSIMS: TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION SYSTEM

This paper, which appears in a compendium of conference papers, describes the TRansportation ANalysis and SIMulation System (TRANSIMS) Project, the system's major modules, and the projects's near-term plans. TRANSIMS employs advanced computational and analytical techniques to create an integrated regional transportation systems analysis environment. The simulation environment includes a regional population of individual travelers and freight loads with travel activities and plans, whose individual interactions are simulated on the transportation system, and whose environmental impact is determined. An interim operational capability (IOC) for each major TRANSIMS module will be developed during the 5-year program. When the IOC is ready, a specific case study to confirm the IOC features, applicability, and readiness will be completed.
