Abstract

The project is designed to assess the likely effects of enhanced information systems on travel behaviour, the transport industry and on the long term development of cities. Empirical studies include twelve surveys and two experiments, the latter covering simulation of route guidance and RDS using a real-time computer game, and test drives in real road conditions with in-vehicle guidance and information systems. The work identifies an urgent need for both improved longitudinal data on travellers' behavioural responses and a renewed effort in the development of experimental procedures designed to test specific hypotheses concerning behavioural response.
