The module teaches state-of-the-art of the ling 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.
Teaching and Learning Methods: Lectures and lab. sessions (group of 2 students).
Course Policies: Attendance to the lab. sessions are mandatory.
