Towards an Agent-based, Integrated Land-use Transport Modeling System

Ziemke, Dominik; Nagel, Kai; Moeckel, Rolf

This paper reports on initial steps of an integration of the microscopic land-use simulation system SILO (Simple Integrated Land- Use Orchestrator) and the agent-based transport simulation system MATSim (Multi-Agent Transport Simulation). It is shown how information can be transferred from the land-use model to the transport model in an agent-oriented fashion and how MATSim can be used as a transport model within the SILO framework in lieu of an aggregate transport model, which SILO has been coupled with up to now. It is shown that results of the previous model structure can be reproduced by the new fully microscopic modeling system based on SILO and MATSim. It is discussed how an agent-based transfer of information can also be established in the reverse direction, i.e. from the transport model to the land-use model based on the implementation of a query architecture. Finally, it is discussed how an integration of SILO and MATSim can help addressing additional current demands for research.
