A functional data approach to Macroscopic fundamental Diagrams
Macroscopic fundamental diagrams (MFDs) describe the relationship between aggregated flow and density in urban road networks
Calibration of stochastic traffic models
A fundamental challenge in constructing Big Models is the question of calibration. Big Models typically have a large number of parameters, which need to be inferred from data in a robust and theoretically justifiable way. Approximate Bayesian Computation is one promising approach to tackle this calibration problem for large complex models.
