    In microsimulation models, the behaviours of agents as intelligent objects are modeled through various behavioral modeling techniques, which give rise to uncertainties in the modeling workflow and predicted outputs. ILUTE (Integrated Land Use Transportation Environment model) is an agent-object-based microsimulation model system designed to simulate different activities in a city, in which many agents (persons, families, households, firms, etc.) intelligently and/ or randomly act and interact in a complex way. A 150,000 (150K) synthetic base year (1986) household sample of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) population is used as the starting point for undertaking twenty-year historical simulations (1986-2006). In order to analyze the uncertainty associated with stochastic behaviours in the ILUTE model system, a 1000 independent runs using different initial random number seed.. Read More»
