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)
Activity-based transportation models have set the standard for modelling travel demand for the last decade. It seems common practice nowadays to collect the data to estimate these activity-based transportation models by means of activity-travel diaries. This paper presents a general functional framework of an advanced activity-travel diary data collection(More)
Discretization is defined as the process that divides continuous numeric values into intervals of discrete categorical values. In this article, the concept of cost-based discretization as a pre-processing step to the induction of a classifier is introduced in order to obtain an optimal multi-interval splitting for each numeric attribute. A transparent(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)
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)
An automatic service to match commuting trips has been designed. Candidate carpoolers register their personal profile and a set of periodically recurring trips. The Global CarPooling Matching Service (GCPMS) shall advise registered candidates how to combine their commuting trips by carpooling. Planned periodic trips correspond to nodes in a graph; the edges(More)
