Pete Sykes of PS-TTRM will present the work, findings, and next steps of TANoise (a noise software microsimulation tool similar to PEARS, and AIRE). TANoise was developed as a research project support to the END work, now in phase 2.
The TANoise software is now validated and the final report will be available at the seminar. The software is now available for trial. The seminar will then discuss options for the next phase of the work.
Pete will also describe the UK Transport Systems Catapult’s work on the IMP (Intelligent Mobility Platform) – a systems architecture to enable interoperability between transport models and to support innovative modelling and data analytics.
