This report presents a simulation environment for pre-deployment testing of the autonomous shuttles that will operate in the Linden Residential Area. An autonomous shuttle deployment was already successfully launched and operated in the city of Columbus and ended recently. This report focuses on the second autonomous shuttle deployment planned to start in December, 2019, using a route that will help to solve first-mile / last-mile mobility challenges in the Linden neighborhood of Columbus by

This document presents simulation testing environments in two open source simulators and a commercial simulator for this residential area route and how they can be used for model-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop simulation testing of autonomous shuttle operation before the actual deployment.
