Demand for Agent-Based Transportation Models & Social Behavioral Challenges
Book Contribution - Book Chapter Conference Contribution
Agent-Based modelling has been around us for quite some time now and has thus become a crucial factor for executing prediction-based planning, such as the transportation models for metropolitan cities. This paper undertakes the fundamental understanding of the agent-based modeling and simulation and its application to the transportation models while discussing the scope of its applications and advantages too. The paper then presents the concepts attributed to the social behaviors in conjunction with the agent-based modelling techniques applied so far. The literature review conducted in lieu of this work has resulted in agreement with the fact that the potential of agent-based modelling is by far greater than ever due to the ever-improving computing speeds and capabilities, while the understanding of complex human behavior will continue to be a challenge for simulations and automation techniques developed so far.
