Abstract

The project aims to define the specification of a new type of transport demand model, which would be dynamic and information-sensitive, and to produce a first working prototype. Three lines of modelling research are used: micro-simulation, activity-based analysis, and macroscopic methods. The specification is constructed around the idea of a simulated individual in a simulated household defined by lifestyle and evolving life-cycle position, who has a pattern of planned activites and choices to make. The model is evolutionary in character and incorporates full and partial, or inaccurate, information, experience and inertia. Further development and validation are necessary before full-scale implementation.
