NRP 65: Sustainable Urban Patterns (SUPat)
Sponsor: Swiss National Science Foundation
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Bilal Farooq (PM), Ricardo Hurtubia (PM), Dimitrios Efthymiou
Period: October 01, 2010-September 30, 2013
This project aims at developing methodologies for the integration of qualitative an quantitative tools for land use planning and urban project-evaluation . The methodology will allow the interaction between urban design experts and land use modelers, developing techniques to use the description of urban projects and policies as inputs for land use models like UrbanSim and transport models like MATSim. The modeling effort output is used as input for the experts, generating an iterative feedback.
SustainCity: Micro-simulation for the prospective of sustainable cities in Europe
Sponsor: European Commission
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Ricardo Hurtubia (PM), Bilal Farooq (PM), Dimitrios Efthymiou
Period: January 01, 2010-December 31, 2012
The goal of this project is to address the modelling and computational issues of integrating modern mobility simulations with the latest micro-simulation land use models. The project intends to advance the state-of-the-art in the field of the micro-simulation of prospective integrated models of Land-Use and Transport (LUTI). On the modelling side, the main challenges are to integrate a demographic evolution module, to add an environmental module, to improve the overall consistency and, last but not least, to deal with the multi-scale aspects of the problem: several time horizons and spatial resolutions are involved.
