In the project ILUMASS (Integrated Land Use Modelling and Transportation System Simulation) seven research institutions in Germany developed an integrated, completely microscopic simulation model of land use, transport and environmental impacts in urban regions. For test purposes, S&W and the Institute of Spatial Planning of the University of Dortmund implemented the little ILUMASS model, a reduced version of the ILUMASS model in which the time-consuming microsimulation of traffic flows was replaced by the existing more aggregate transport model of the IRPUD model.
