Abstract:

Motor vehicle abuse entails emitting large amounts of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. In order to reduce climate change and life expectancy loss, authorities want to launch a set of sustainable travel policies which should be evaluated before their deployment. Although multi-agent systems for traffic analyses are very popular, they mainly focus on faithfully reproducing vehicle displacement and interaction between vehicles. It is therefore necessary to go one step further and integrate the transport choice factors that take place before starting everyday journeys. We present the baseline Geosimulation that integrates all the steps of citizens home-to-work commutes for assessing the impact green travelling policies would have.
