The innovation of ViM lies in the combination of historical and current traffic data, contextual data through simulations, and the coupling to data analysis methods to improve the quality of different mobility applications.
The aim is to design and build an extensible platform for mobility services including data analysis and simulation modules. The main objectives of the work are in particular:
The design and implementation of a software framework that enables the integration of simulation tools and big data analysis modules and their use as a simulation and analysis tool.
The framework's validation via integration of various existing simulation tools and analysis methods, both licensed and open source.
Establishing the framework's ability to be used both offline for repeatable scenario run-through and online for decision support based on live data feeds with acceptable response times.
Implementation of comprehensive simulation scenarios, each requiring several simulation tools.
