Dynamic Traffic Model Antwerp

15038 / 17009
From 2017 to 2018
Commissioned by the Flemish Traffic Centre, the THV TML-Technum-Grontmij builds a macroscopic dynamic traffic model for the Antwerp region. Such a dynamic model can simulate congestion and travel times much more realistically than the traditional static models. In addition, the lower computation time allows large analyses at network level compared to microscopic simulations.
The macroscopic dynamic traffic model Antwerp is the first of its kind in Flanders. This model can be used for future scenario analyses and support to dynamic traffic management (e.g. route advice in incident situations).
The TML team has years of academic experience with macroscopic traffic modelling, and therefore takes the project management on their behalf. In addition, TML is responsible for the calibration of the traffic model. We will pay special attention to proper observance of congestion during the calibration process. TML is also leading the second and third part of the project, namely scenario modelling and updating the existing situation.

In this follow-up project to the development of the macroscopic dynamic traffic model Antwerp, the model is recalibrated based on specific requests of the Flemish Government to keep the model up-to-date.
Also the support and analysis of scenarios (which could be for example simulating the effect of infrastructural improvements on the ringway around Antwerp) is included in the project.
