Bayesian Calibration of Microscopic Travel Demand Models from Traffic Counts

The calibration of microsimulation-based demand models is a difficult problem, and there is no source of information that may be disregarded in this process. This work shows how traffic counts can be consistently incorporated in the calibration. The approach is mathematically sound, computationally efficient, and compatible with typical microsimulation techniques.


Gunnar Fl�tter�d graduated in engineering informatics with a focus on systems engineering in 2003 from the Technical University of Ilmenau, Germany. He completed his PhD research on the calibration of microsimulation-based travel demand models in 2008 at the Berlin Institute of Technology. Currently, he is a visiting scholar at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne.
