Researchers focuses on the social determinants and impacts of developments in the transport system (such as e.g. e-mobility and automated driving). They aim at integrating newest behavioural insights and notions (regret minimisation, moral decision making behaviour) to increase the behavioural realism of transport choice models, and also in using this knowledge to develop effective transport policy approaches. To this aim, TU Delft researchers develop and test new theories and models of traveller behaviour to be included in policy evaluation tools such as CBA and MCA. The work has a quantitative, sometimes mathematical orientation helping to connect with the interests of engineers and planners active in the field.
