Agent based modelling and visualisation of the causes and consequences of knock-on delays

Agent based modelling and visualisation of the causes and consequences of knock-on delays

City, University London and Risk Solutions

With support from Great Western Railway


SUMMARY

The project created an agent-based model (ABM) of the railway network and introduced incidents that cause primary train delay. Interactive visualisation techniques were designed to help summarise the complex delay outputs. The model was used to plan different strategies, and the visualisation tool was used to compare their effectiveness.
