Modelling Learning and Adaptation in Route and Departure Time Choice Behaviour: Achievements and Prospects

This paper presents an overview of the study that focuses on the day to day dynamics of decision in interaction with the performance of the transport system. As the development of this area is still in its infancy, the purpose of this paper is two-fold: 1) it is intended as a guidepost along the ways for the subject that is still very much under active development, and 2) based on the review, it identifies key issues and areas where there is a need for further research. The existing modelling approaches are classified into two groups based on the underlying learning mechanisms in the models. The first group consists of the models which contain explicit updating mechanisms for the perception of the attributes of the network, while the second group consists of the models which do not contain the updating mechanisms. The paper discusses key modelling issues including the issues regarding the learning component, choice modelling, habitual choice , choice set formation, data collection methods, and the evolution and convergence of the systems, and have made some suggestions regarding areas of future research.
