ADAM - Agent-based Demand and Assignment Model

The core algorithm is an agent-based model, which simulates travel patterns on a network based on microscopic decision-making by each traveler. The network performance is evaluated according to its macroscopic characteristics, including trip origins and destinations, traffic flow, and cost.

Agent-based model describes the decision making of individual traveler by setting interaction rules among different agents on the traffic network. ADAM defines three types of agents: nodes, links and travelers.
