NeMo-models used in evaluating car-sharing services

NeMo-models used in evaluating car-sharing services

A report called “Together with car – possibilities of sharing” has been published. The report shines light on different sharing models of private cars and their societal effects. The goal of the report was to uncover the best models for car-sharing. The NeMo-models (New Mobility) developed by FLOU were used to evaluate the potential of […]

Collaboration and communication must be developed along with modelling in transport and land use impact assessment

Collaboration and communication must be developed along with modelling in transport and land use impact assessment

A preliminary report about developing evaluation of land use effects in transportation projects has been published. Transportation projects have many different effects on land use and urban structure, but their treatment in current benefit-cost analyses is not completely clear or there does not exist a uniform way of evaluating these effects. To improve the situation, […]

FLOU pilots open-source activity-based travel demand models

FLOU pilots open-source activity-based travel demand models

FLOU is piloting an activity-based model for travel demand in the Greater Helsinki area. The model is constructed using MATSim simulation framework. Mobility is mostly driven by people’s needs to participate in different kinds of activities such as school, work, hobbies or errands. An activity-based travel demand model forecasts the daily traffic based on peoples’ daily activities. Activity-based travel […]
