Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal is to become familiar with the issue of demand modeling in road and urban transport, specialized software, etc. Students also learn the four-stage transport models, models of traffic flow patterns and behavior of traffic.

Introduction deals with traditional approaches to modeling of transport demand, types of models and software products available on the market. The main part of teaching is about four-step transport model and a model based on the theory of traffic flow and behavioralistickými approaches to modeling traffic behavior, decision making in transport and traffic modeling based on population activities. One of the objectives of the course will deepen knowledge in the field of statistical methods applied in the analysis of traffic behavior. Students get an overview of approaches to transport modeling, learn to classify traffic problems and will be able to solve with the help of a suitably chosen methodology. Will provide an overview of approaches to modeling decision-making processes, analysis of transport demand and travel behavior.
