Research led by a new Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) recipient, Dr Kim Jiwon at The University of Queensland, aims to develop a low-cost, data-driven framework that builds a traffic simulation model automatically and directly from vehicle trajectory data to enable rapid and reliable analysis of large-scale traffic networks.

The project uses an innovative approach to inferring travel behaviours, movement patterns and traffic dynamics from increasingly available urban trajectory data. Expected outcomes include improved decision support for urban planners and traffic operators and enhanced traffic management and incident response capabilities, providing significant social, economic and environment benefits through optimised road use and urban flow.
