ITS Podcast episode 25: Second Anniversary with Dr. Wagner, talking about SUMO

Congratulations to everyone!! This is our second anniversary episode. We have 24 episodes online and this is our 25th!

We have prepared a special episode to celebrate this milestone. We have prepared a special news minisection where Dr. Maryam Kaveshgar will summarize some of the most outstanding achievements we have witnessed in Intelligent Transportation in the last two years, since this publication exists.

Then, Mehran Shirazi will introduce a new minisection called “Amazing Transportation” where he will be talking about some rather unusual yet surprising jobs related to Transportation. Don’t miss this one, it’s hilarious!

We have also a very illustrative interview with Dr. Peter Wagner about SUMO, a brand new approach to traffic simulation very much in the line of an open software philosophy. This interview has been brilliantly performed by prof. Celikoglu.

We have worked hard to get this party ready for our listeners, our special, unique and distinguished community that we treasure. Thanks for being there!
