Abstract: The paper presents research on large-scale microscopic simulation of taxi services in Berlin based on floating car data collected by the Taxi Berlin fleet, the largest taxi association in Germany's capital. Firstly, Berlin's taxi market is shortly described and the demand and supply data obtained from FCD analysed. Secondly, the online taxi dispatching problem formulation for this specific case is given, followed by the definition of two real-time rule-based heuristics used to dispatch taxis dynamically within the simulation. Finally, the simulation setup in MATSim is described, and the results obtained with both heuristics are analysed and compared in terms of dispatching performance, proving the effectiveness of the second strategy at different demand scales.
