Abstract

This paper deals with Land-use-Transport-Interaction (LUTI) and presents a conceptual model of a data driven LUTI modelling tool based on neural networks. A starting point is the general opinion of experts on the state of the art LUTI models; currently used land use transportation models are too aggregate in substance. Therefore to enhance the interaction between transport and land-use, researchers propose the refinement of the models; internalising more comprehensive relationships. However, the lack of a good theoretical framework impedes the development and consequently the use of these models on a large scale. This fact has fuelled questions: (i) does transport planning need these comprehensive descriptions of land use; (ii) is it necessary to disaggregate and refine the models further in order to be able to
