                                            TRANS-TOOLS: TOOLS for Transport forecasting And Scenario testing.



Project Funding

The TRANS-TOOLS project was funded by the European Commission (DG Mobility & Transport) under the 6th RTD Programme.



Project summary

The objective of the TRANS-TOOLS project was the establishment of a ›proprietary‹ Intellectual property right (IPR) free reference model by the European Commission for the assessment of transport policy measures. For this purpose, a network-based tool was developed by integrating different European transport demand and assessment models on a common software platform. The TRANS-TOOLS model consists of following modules: passenger demand module, freight demand module, logistics module, traffic assignment module, regional economic module and external impacts. A major target of TRANS-TOOLS was to obtain consistency with the EU’s Transport Policy Information System ETIS.

IWW’s main responsibility was the contribution of the passenger demand module to the TRANS-TOOLS system.
