The influence of actor strategies on the spatial configuration of daily mobility: exploration via simulation
Daily mobility in urban areas is largely determined by transport and travel policies which are usually designed with sustainable development as an objective. But mobility also derives from various individual strategies that are not always consistent with planners' objectives and may engender flows and modal ratios that diverge from these objectives.
The questions raised by the thesis are: What individual and collective strategies can be identified for cities in the next 20 years? What impact do they have, taken in isolation or in combination, on the spatial organisation of daily mobility and associated traffic flows?
To answer these questions, we propose to integrate the simulation of daily mobility in an original way as part of a territorial intelligence approach.
The simulation of actor strategies and the patterns that derive from them is done via the 'daily mobility' simulation module in MobiSim. Based on an individual-centred approach, this model can be used to simulate many mobility and traffic scenarios.
With a view to better understanding individual and collective strategies, a platform envisaged as an interactive tool shall be put in place for each resident of the agglomerations of Besançon and Dijon to identify the best route and means of transport to use to suit a particular individual strategy. For socio-economic actors, the objective here is to capture innovative behaviour in terms of mobility.
