Associative classification has aroused significant attention in recent years and proved to generate good results in previous research efforts. This paper aims to contribute to this line of research by the development of more effective associative classifiers. Our goal is to achieve this by the incorporation of two novel interesting measures, i.e. intensity(More)
Several activity-based transportation models are now becoming operational and are entering the stage of application for the modelling of travel demand. Some of these models use decision rules to support its decision making instead of principles of utility maximization. Decision rules can be derived from different modelling approaches. In a previous study,(More)
Smart grid design depends on the availability of realistic data. In the near future, energy demand by electric vehicles will be a substantial component of the overall demand and peaks of required power could become critical in some regions. Transportation research has been using micro-simulation based activity-based models for traffic forecasting. The(More)
Several activity-based models are now becoming operational and are entering the stage of application in transport planning. Some of these models use a set of decision trees to support its decision making instead of using principles of utility maximization. However, it is believed that the structure of decision trees can sometimes be very instable and(More)
The vision and scientific challenges presented in this paper are the objectives of the FET-FP7 project DATASIM. The project aims at providing an entirely new and highly detailed spatio-temporal microsimulation methodology for human mobility, grounded on massive amounts of big data of various types and from various sources, with the goal to forecast the(More)
Huge volumes of location information are available nowadays due to the rapid growth of positioning devices (GPS-enabled smartphones and tablets, on-board navigation systems in vehicles, vessels and planes, smart chips for animals, etc.). In the near future, it is unavoidable that this explosion will contribute in what is called the Big Data era, raising(More)
Carpooling is an emerging alternative transportation mode that is eco-friendly and sustainable as it enables commuters to save time, travel resource, reduce emission and traffic congestion. The procedure of carpooling consists of a number of steps namely; (i) create a motive to carpool, (ii) communicate this motive with other agents, (iii) negotiate a plan(More)
