Project detail
Project Description:   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.
Goals:   The key project objective is to develop a theoretical framework for agent-based driver and traveler behavior modeling.
