This webinar is intended for modelers who are looking for a basic introduction to DTA concepts.
This session introduces the concept and characteristics of dynamic traffic assignment and discusses how DTA offers an opportunity to supplement macroscopic travel demand model and microscopic traffic simulation model to address a variety of modeling challenges.
Dr. Michael Mahut obtained his Ph.D. in Operations Research from the University of Montreal. Since joining INRO he has been the lead researcher behind the Dynameq DTA software package. He has also participated in numerous consulting projects involving DTA, where he mainly specializes in calibrating DTA models.
S. Travis Waller is an Associate Professor and the Phil M. Ferguson Teaching Fellow in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Waller received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from Northwestern University in Industrial Engineering and Management Science and his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from The Ohio State University. His primary areas of research are in transportation network modeling, dynamic traffic assignment, stochastic shortest path algorithms, and traffic simulation.
