Computer Simulation for an Automated Roadway Network 720271

This paper discusses the development and preparation for a simulation on the digital computer of an automated roadway network for a new urban transportation system concept called the Metro Guideway, using the 1990 Detroit region as the case study area. The objectives of the simulation are to determine the performance of the system as a function of various design parameters, to develop operational computer programs, and to evaluate the computer hardware needs of a real-world system. The discussion includes a brief description of the case study area and an overview of the mathematical and computer models.
