After five years of R&D, researchers have a number of independent simulation tools to evaluate different algorithms. A broad API was developed to handle interfacing any simulation with a multi-agent demand simulator. This was tested on the existing MATSim-NYC (which will be enhanced to include freight and parcel delivery activities) and aBEAM implementation, BEAM-NYC, for three use cases in electric transit, freight, and traffic. Each of these use cases considers equity impacts on different population segments (by income level, having disabilities, age level). The project jointly conducts some of the case studies in NYC and Seattle, enabling deeper insights of evaluated cases and promote tech transfer and collaborations to broader communities (including agencies, the industry, and the public).
