This section of the UrbanSim web site provides a collaboration area for research projects. Anyone in the ResearchGroup can edit pages within this web. Subsections of research project pages may be restricted to the participating researchers while work is in preliminary state.
NSF: Robust Intelligence Project Grant IIS-0705898 from the National Science Foundation. This project focuses on melding artificial intelligence techniques with discrete choice econometric methods to develop dynamic models of activity and routing behaviors.
European Research Council: SustainCity Funded by the European Research Commission, this project seeks to develop extensions to UrbanSim to adapt to the European context, to couple the model system with dynamic assignment models and to use the combined model systems to simulate sustainability in selected European metropolitan regions.
FHWA: Modeling the Urban Continuum This project is funded by the Federal Highway Administration, and focuses on 'Modeling the Urban Continuum in an Integrated Framework: Location Choice, Activity-Travel Behavior, and Dynamic Traffic Patterns'
