A Model of Complex Travel Behavior: Part II. An Operational Model


Based on the theoretical model of complex travel behavior developed in a companion paper (Recker et al, 1985), an operational system of models, STARCHILD (Simulation of Travel/Activity Responses to Complex Household Interactive Logistic Decisions), has been developed to examine the formation of household travel/activity patterns. The system employs a simulation approach in combination with techniques of pattern recognition, multiobjective optimization and disaggregate choice models. Initial empirical verification of the system of models is presented based on results obtained from a sample data set.
