A General Traveler Agent Behaviour Model for Traffic Flow Simulation
The modeling of traveler’s daily travel behaviour is a complex problem. We propose a general activity-based traveler agent behaviour model for microscopic traffic flow simulation, inspired by the ideas of activity-based traffic demand model, hierarchical structure in behaviours, agent approach and subjective utility optimization method. In the case study, the general model was applied to an unsignalized intersection mixed traffic flow simulation model, and the validation results were promising.
