The project will: Develop a theoretical framework for agent-based driver and traveler behavior modeling. Evaluate traditional and emerging data-collection methods for agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS) in transportation. Evaluate alternative implementation platforms for ABMS applications in transportation. Develop an agent-based model of enroute/pretrip route, departure time, and mode choices toward the integration of travel demand, dynamic network, and traffic simulation models. Apply the model to transportation systems management and capital investment applications.
The key project objective is to develop a theoretical framework for agent-based driver and traveler behavior modeling.
