Advanced Decision Modeling for Real Time Variable Tolling - Data Collection Trial

This investigation extends the state of knowledge of decision modeling under risk and ambiguity by field testing a mobile data collection platform for the capturing of naturalistic choice outcomes, associated environmental states, decision makers’ self-articulated perceptions of risk and assessments of ambiguity, and socio-economic attributes. This project is a second step in software/hardware development for advancing the ability to forecast future revenue sources in transportation. The data collection platform was developed in 2012 through a grant from the Mid-America Transportation Center and now it will be field tested to obtain insights for developing, testing and implementing new behavioral models that explicitly describe how the precise information is used—in this case, ambiguous information signaled by variable toll lane charges—that are superior to those obtained to date.
