A Method of Parameter Design for Passenger Train Line Plan Based on Multi-Agent Model
The basic framework of passenger train line plan is determined by its parameters. Considering the association between passenger train line plan and the travel choice behavior of passengers, the paper introduces the distributed artificial intelligence to study decision-making process of passenger train line plan and builds up the multi-agents based model of matching between transport demand and transport resource. Based on this, the paper puts forward a method that realizes the parameter optimization for passenger train line plan by using the multi-agents model. This method not only improves the quality of railway passenger product, but also increases the comprehensive benefit of transportation.
