Abstract: The MATSim project (MATSim, 2016) started with Kai Nagel, then at ETH Zürich, and his interest in improving his work with, and for, the TRANSIMS (TRansportation ANalysis and SIMulation System) project (Smith et al., 1995; FHWA, 2013); he also wanted to make the resulting code open source. After Kai Nagel’s departure to Berlin in 2004, Kay W. Axhausen joined the team, bringing a different approach and experience. A collaboration, successful and productive for more than 10 years, was thus established, combining a physicist’s and a civil engineer’s perspective, as well as bringing together expertise in traffic flow, large-scale computation, choice modeling and CAS (Complex Adaptive Systems).
