Job Description

Traffic simulation - construction and validation of route models

Bachelor's/Master's thesis

Your work environment:

The functional reliability of automated and networked driving must be guaranteed in every conceivable traffic situation. Extensive computer simulations of various traffic scenarios should systematically check this. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide the simulations with the relevant traffic events in correct models of the routes and, in particular, traffic flows. As part of the "SAVe:" research project, a virtual test field for the development of automated and networked mobility is being set up. In a digital twin of the city of Ingolstadt, new mobility solutions will be mapped and their influence on traffic analysed. 

Your assignments:

Their contribution is the technical-scientific analysis of route models and their use for a traffic flow simulation. In order to use a traffic simulation as a test environment for automated and networked driving, a detailed representation of reality must be implemented. An important role is played by the route networks, which are to be analyzed and validated automatically in this work.

  • Research on the state of the art of route models in vehicle and traffic simulation
  • Analysis of existing route models under consideration of quality aspects
  • Processing of route models for the coupling of different simulation tools
  • Development of a methodology for the verification of the route quality
  • Validation of methodology using fleet data
Your qualifications:
  • Studies in the fields of traffic engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, civil engineering or a comparable course of studies
  • Programming knowledge or in-depth IT knowledge (e.g. C++, Python, Matlab)
  • Practical experience through internships desirable
  • Interest in automated driving functions and computer simulation
  • Ideally experience with traffic flow simulation (SUMO, VISSIM, AIMSUN, etc.)
  • Willingness to work interdisciplinary in a project team
