Service-oriented Architecture for Automatic Evaluation of Urban Logistical Concepts

ARGESIM Report 20 (ISBN 978-3-901608-97-1), p 261-268, DOI: 10.11128/arep.20.a2036


With the rapidly increasing availability of logistics concepts new tools are required to provide accurate estimations of concept effectiveness to urban planners. In this paper we describe a service oriented architecture providing automated concept evaluation through agent-based-traffic-simulation, combining general traffic models with specialised logistical models into singular simulations. Key focus of the paper is the integration architecture utilized to combine the different tools from a previously developed manual workflow. The architecture is designed to incorporate multiple different tools into a combined workflow, providing non-domain users with a highly specialised tool.
