The beta-testing group will test new features of the latest version of the travel demand model “SACSIM19” and document findings in preparation for the adoption of the 2020 MTP/SCS Preferred Scenario.
SACOG staff will select participants for the beta-testing group based on the participant’s submission form qualifications.
Initial training on the new features of SACSIM19 will be provided. The beta-testing group will test an array of modeling scenarios including roadway pricing, Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) and/or Transportation Network Companies (TNCs). Expectations for participants include modeling applications such as running full SACSIM19 model runs, assignment only, select link and select zones tests. Summaries of testing scenarios will look at both corridor and regional level performance measures such as: traffic volumes, tolling revenues, travel times, travel speeds, and congested vehicle miles traveled.
