Summary

Students will learn about the use of outputs traffic modeling for planning the development needs of territory and the procedures in the preparation of a traffic model. Will get knowledge about the use of software systems for traffic modeling. The solution will be the role of traffic modeling in planning processes and the use of software for traffic modeling in relation to urban transport. Students will be acquainted with the modeling traffic for the purposes of traffic management, real-time preparing of scenarios in traffic excesses.
