Comprehensive and state-of-the-art study of the important aspects and different components of urban traffic operations and traffic flow modeling techniques. Traffic management systems include traffic data collection and processing, incident detection and management, adaptive signal systems, adaptive ramp metering systems, road pricing and evacuation traffic management. Simulation modeling includes the introduction to traffic simulation software packages, model calibration and validation, input modeling, random number generators, statistical design and analysis of simulation experiments. Focus on the microscopic traffic simulation and its various modeling and simulation approaches in studying traffic dynamics and control in a transportation network.
