Abstract: Trafikverket’s development plan states as one of eleven expected results “En ny generation persontransportmodellsystem, med dynamisk modell för storstad implementerad” (Trafikverket, 2014). IHOP aims to be this system. IHOP2 is the second development project advancing the IHOP system. IHOP2 couples the travel demand model Regent and the network assignment package TransModeler through a new, agent-based interface layer that is based on the MATSim transport simulation toolkit. The main objective of this effort is to demonstrate that such a coupling is feasible. This demonstration is delivered based on a prototypical Stockholm case study. The present document is also meant to serve as a technical documentation of the IHOP system in its current form.
