Abstract: Microsimulation is becoming more popular in transportation research. The purpose of this research is to explore the potential of microsimulation by integrating an existing activity-based travel demand model with an agent-based traffic simulation model. Differences in model precisions from the two models are resolved through a series of data conversions, and the models are able to form an iterative process similar to previous modelling frameworks. The resulting model is then used for emission modelling where the traditional average-speed model is improved by exploiting agent-based traffic simulation results. Results from emission modelling have demonstrated the advantages of the microsimulation approach over conventional methodologies that rely heavily on temporal or spatial aggregation.
