From Communauté de la Fabrique des Mobilités

MATSim provides a framework to implement large-scale agent-based transport simulations. The framework consists of several modules which can be combined or used stand-alone. Modules can be replaced by custom implementations to test single aspects of your own work.

Currently, MATSim offers a framework for demand-modeling, agent-based mobility-simulation (traffic flow simulation), re-planning, a controler to iteratively run simulations as well as methods to analyze the output generated by the modules.

Key Features of MATSim

  Fast Dynamic and Agent-Based Traffic Simulation

Simulate whole days within minutes

  Private and Public Traffic

Both private cars and transit traffic can be simulated

  Supports Large Scenarios

MATSim can simulate millions of agents or huge, detailed networks

 Versatile Analyses and Simulation Output

E.g. compare simulated data to real-world counting stations

  Modular Approach

Easily extended with your own algorithms

  Open Source

You get the Java Source Code, which runs on all major operating systems

  Active Development

The international MATSim community constantly adds new features and improves current ones
