EMME 2023 Now Available

EMME 23.00.01 introduces major new AGENT demand modelling features including support for fully joint travel, intra-household interactions, new O-D targets for automated calibration to leverage big data, and UI improvements for working more productively with large model configurations. EMME 23.00.01 also includes new features to edit attribute values directly from network tables, to publish O-D data tables directly to matrices, and brings accumulated maintenance for Modeller tools.

Highlights include:

Enhancements to Automated Model Calibration

  • Agent now supports calibration targets at the O-D and zonal levels making it possible to leverage new data sources in automated model calibration procedures, including passively collected “big data” O-D trip tables, transit data sets, traffic counts and more. Calibration targets are now possible to incorporate at three levels: 
    • Regional: Targets that are specified for the entire region. For example, total number of trips in the modeling region.
    • Zonal: Targets that are specified at zones. For example, number of zero car households in each zone.
    • O-D: Targets that are specified at the O-D level. For example, big data O-D trip tables by mode/time-period/purpose.

These improvements are designed to enable modelers to leverage and fuse multiple disparate data sources, including conventional household travel survey (HHTS) data sources and new mobility data sources, for the purposes of automated model calibration of virtually any travel demand model.

New Agents

  • Agent now offers support for new managed data structures, including:
    • Fully joint tours and Joint tour participants to support explicit modeling of fully joint travel.
    • Sub-tours to support explicit modeling of at-work and other sub-tours.
    • Cars to support explicit modeling of vehicle choices including car type, for example, EV.

Joint Travel and Coordinated Travel Choices

  • Agent now offers support for modeling of coordinated choices via Generic Choice models, including for example a Coordinated Daily Activity Pattern (CDAP) model which may be used to express coordinated decision-making of activity pattern type (for example, work, shopping, recreation) among household members.

Network Tables - Edit Network Attributes Directly

  • It is now possible to edit attribute values directly in a network table. In any network table, select the elements to edit and then select the new option Edit Selected Itemsfrom the Edit menu to set the value of the selected elements.

Publish O-D Values from Data Tables To Matrices

  • It is now possible to publish O-D values from relational or spatial data tables directly into a selected matrix. Select the Publish to Matrixtool icon   to open the Publish to Matrix window and publish data to ScalarOriginDestination or Full
