New paper on “Real-time Electric Mobility Simulation in Metropolitan Areas” released

11. January 2013

In September 2012, the Northumbria University (WP4) team presented a paper on “Real-time electric mobility simulation in Metropolitan Areas” during a conference hosted by the Association for Education and research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe (eCAADe).

This paper discusses the potential of emerging digital representations of built environments coupled with agent-based modeling (ABM). A new set of urban transportation data is provided as an input which is the electric vehicles (EVs) population of one of the UK metropolitan areas. The study is a part of a PhD research that focuses on investigating computer-aided software to develop a virtual route for electric mobility in the North Sea Region. An overview of agent-based simulation platforms is discussed. Electric mobility system has particular paradigms that differ from conventional urban transport systems; a comparison is presented followed by the recommended approach of integrating the two techniques (visualization and simulation). Finally, the architecture of agents’ algorithm within the EVs network is presented through a case study of virtual Newcastle-Gateshead model.
