Activity-based Modeling Platforms

TourCast is a powerful activity-based modeling platform for travel behaviors such as time shifting, telecommuting, transit use and the interactions of household members. As the largest and most experienced group of transportation modelers in the industry, we have been developing travel demand forecasting models for over 40 years. We are experts in both activity-based modeling and more traditional trip based modeling for passenger and freight applications.

The objective of the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) initiative is to demonstrate how intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies can efficiently and proactively manage the movement of people and goods in major transportation corridors.

Freight Demand Model Development and Application

CS has continuously advanced the state of the practice in freight and truck modeling. Our methods combine the best of commodity flow models, vehicle-based travel demand models, operational simulations and modal diversion models. We integrate these and other tools for an approach that considers mobility, economic impact, benefit-cost, air quality and safety analysis. Our current initiatives include the development of advanced regional freight models that incorporate supply chain and urban logistics practices in the modeling framework.
