Accurate rapid simulation of urban traffic using discrete modelling. (1996)
Report
Russell, G., Shaw, P., & Ferguson, N. (1996). Accurate rapid simulation of urban traffic using discrete modelling

Increasing model complexity has traditionally been viewed as a key way of improving microscopic model accuracy. However, with complexity comes an increase in execution time. In some applications, such as UTC systems, low execution times and a high de... Read More about Accurate rapid simulation of urban traffic using discrete modelling..
