Abstract

Many technologies have been developed to assist mobility in a smart city; however, there is a lack of models to support the technology. In this paper, a framework is proposed to integrate a model system into an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) environment. The framework allows us to integrate the information provided by the technology in order to configure the transport network. Models considered are both simulation models (i.e. assignment) and design models (vehicle routing). This framework could be applied to support managing evacuation operations in a city.
