The Multi-Agent Transport Simulation MATSim
This book gives an introduction to the most important concepts of MATSim and describes how the basic functionality can be extended by adding schedule-based public transit, electric or autonomous cars, paratransit, or within-day replanning.
Cost-based analysis of autonomous mobility services
The fast advances in autonomous driving technology prompt the question of suitable operational models for future autonomous vehicles. A key determinant of the viability of such operational models is…
Processing Raw Data from Global Positioning Systems without Additional Information
A postprocessing procedure needing no input other than the most basic GPS raw data is described, which is applied to GPS records collected in the Swiss cities of Zurich, Winterthur, and Geneva to demonstrate that derived data are ready for further applications, such as discrete choice model estimations.
Activity spaces: Measures of social exclusion?
The paper provides a first investigation of the suitability of different measures of activity space size to identify persons at risk of social exclusion. This would be a new departure for the…
Activity‐based approaches to travel analysis: conceptual frameworks, models, and research problems
Recent policy discussions about information technology in transport and traffic demand management have increased interest in activity‐based approaches to the analysis of travel behaviour, in…
Comparing Car-Sharing Schemes in Switzerland: User Groups and Usage Patterns
Free-floating car-sharing schemes operate without fixed car-sharing stations, ahead reservationsor return trip requirements. Providing fast and convenient motorization, they attract both…
