Proceedings of the Workshop on Traffic Modeling: Simulation Models: From the Labs to the Trenches

Approximately 100 traffic modelers, software developers and users met in Sedona, Arizona, September 18-21, 2005, to brainstorm issues related to the trends and challenges on the development and use of traffic models. The Workshop on Traffic Modeling: Simulation Models: From the Labs to the Trenches focused on the following objectives: (1) to review the current states of the art and practice in traffic modeling; (2) to assess future needs for traffic models and their applications; and (3) to identify directions for further research and model development. To meet the objectives of the workshop, several technical presentations on the state of the art in traffic models and their applications were presented first. Subsequently, workshop attendees actively participated in breakout sessions to identify issues and problems related to traffic modeling and traffic models in three categories: (1) model development; (2) data collection and model calibration; and (3) requirements for applications. The goal of the breakout sessions was to develop prioritized list(s) that researchers and developers could address.
