The module teaches the state-of-the art of the modeling techniques for vehicular mobility. The objectives are first to describe the challenges of close-to-reality random models for vehicular mobility, then to introduce the concepts of vehicular traffic flow models and Origin-Destination (O-D) Matrices for trip and path planning. Finally, it trains on best practices to apply these concepts for realistic vehicular traffic modeling on vehicular traffic simulators.
