It is now possible to simulate regions with several million inhabitants and vehicles microscopically, with as many synthetic travellers, vehicles, links, intersections, etc. in the model as there are in reality. This allows to trace, e.g., a potential fleet of potentially driverless and potentially electric cars in its simulated attempt to serve the synthetic travellers. Evidently, one can obtain insights from this, such as about service quality, financial feasibility, or emissions. The presentation will report about such simulations mostly for Berlin, and some of the results that were obtained. One question is if and how such a model could be coupled to models of atmospheric physics and chemistry to predict air quality consequences of policy measures in the transport sector.
