The goal of the project is to make simulation tools more usable for education. Typically current tools need separate installation and often dedicated machines. Instead of that, we target utilizing shared resources (cloud computing). Thus the pilot has a “Simulation as a Service” type approach.

Platforms and tools

The pilot uses traffic and vehicle simulation tools as the area of smart mobility involves education on mobility as a service, intelligent transportation systems, etc.

Pedagogical methods

The main approach for the pilot is using cloud native technologies. In the longer run, the target is to enable compatibility with online educational systems used by Aalto.
