Dr. Peter Campbell, Professor of Systems Modelling and Simulation and Research Leader in the Defence and Systems Institute (DASI) at the University of South Australia; and Professor of Infrastructure Systems, SMART Infrastructure Facility, University of Wollongong, will be speaking on "Modeling the interaction of traffic and land use planning in South East Metro Sydney."
The SMART Infrastructure Facility group at UOW has just completed a contract for the NSW Government to model the interaction of traffic options and land use planning options against the possible responses of the effected populations of an area in South East Metro Sydney. The presentation will give a brief background to the project, discuss the architecture and design of the model and then the synthetic population, liveability factors and the travel data used to model mode decisions by the agents. Some performance issues will be discussed and some typical output presented. Plans for further extensions to the model will also be discussed.
