Thanks to the support of Citilabs users and partners in Thailand, Citilabs is pleased to offer this rare opportunity to learn how to do Integrated modeling using Cube Voyager for MACROSCOPIC modeling, Cube Avenue for MESOSCOPIC DYNAMIC TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT and Cube Dynasim for traffic MICROSIMULATION. This two-and-a-half-day course is designed for those with some exposure to travel demand modeling or traffic micro-simulation. It will first cover the basic concept of travel demand modeling and how to use Cube Voyager to build a typical 4-step model. The focus then will be on how to apply Cube Avenue to do dynamic traffic assignment for a sub area or corridor. Finally, it will cover traffic micro-simulation using Cube Dynasim emphasizing on simulating traffic within and around parking facilities. The purpose of the course is to give a practical, hands-on overview of using Cube Voyager, Cube Avenue and Cube Dynasim to do Integrated modeling of MACRO, MESO and MICRO level of modeling and simulation. Pre-Requisite: Some basic understanding of travel demand modeling or traffic micro-simulation is preferred. Attendees are required to bring their own laptop PC (not Mac).

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE

  • Introduction to travel demand modeling
  • Introduction to the Cube software suite
  • How to build a travel demand model with Cube Voyager
  • Dynamic traffic assignment with Cube Avenue and Cube Analyst Drive
  • Introduction to traffic simulation with Cube Dynasim
  • How to simulate parking with Cube Dynasim

I look forward to seeing many of you in Bangkok in August. If you have any question, please feel free to contact me at lcheng@citilabs.com.
