MARS Urban simulation

The MARS Urban simulation project aims to model and simulate the traffic flow of bigger cities. This is done with an multimodal approach, meaning different types of traffic participants which interact and influence each other.
The model strives to demonstrate the large scale capabilities of the MARS framework and relies on Open Data sources like OpenStreetMap. The Project is in an early stage and the first goal is to model the traffic system of Hamburg.
