Acceptable Planning: Influencing Individual Behavior to Reduce Transportation Energy Expenditure of a City

23 Sep 2019  ·  Shiwali Mohan, Hesham Rakha, Matthew Klenk ·

Our research aims at developing intelligent systems to reduce the transportation-related energy expenditure of a large city by influencing individual behavior. We introduce COPTER - an intelligent travel assistant that evaluates multi-modal travel alternatives to find a plan that is acceptable to a person given their context and preferences. We propose a formulation for acceptable planning that brings together ideas from AI, machine learning, and economics. This formulation has been incorporated in COPTER that produces acceptable plans in real-time. We adopt a novel empirical evaluation framework that combines human decision data with a high fidelity multi-modal transportation simulation to demonstrate a 4\% energy reduction and 20\% delay reduction in a realistic deployment scenario in Los Angeles, California, USA.
