Researchers are exploring potential impacts of AVs on European car manufacturers, the insurance industry, connected industries and markets, and those who provide public provision of services and supervise compliance.
RAND Europe has contributed to the development and testing of new approaches in modelling demand for travel for over 25 years. Our work applies discrete choice models using observations of individual travel behaviour.
Our transport models contain substantial detail about traveller behaviour by person and household type. Many of these characteristics strongly influence travel behaviour and are therefore essential when exploring future travel demand. Our models also reflect travel across many modes, for many purposes and reflect many possible behavioural responses, such as changing mode, destination, frequency of time of travel, as well as car ownership.Related: More on Transport Research
