Transcript of "Mignon van den Berg - Everscape: 3D multi-­‐user virtual environment for data collection on travel choice behaviour in case of a tsunami"

  1. 1. Everscape3D Multi-User Virtual Environment for Data Collectionon Travel Choice Behaviour in Case of a Tsunami15-03-2012 Mignon van den Berg Delft University of Technology Challenge the future
  2. 2. IntroductionMasterclass TIL/T&P•  Graduation project TIL•  PhD project•  Everscape•  Discussion Masterclass 2
  3. 3. Graduation project TILBackground information•  Bachelor: Industrial Design Engineering•  Master: Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics•  Graduated in: September 2009•  Title: Pedestrian Interaction Behaviour and its Relation to Doorway Capacity Masterclass 3
  4. 4. Graduation project TILWhy this topic and why at TU Delft?Why this topic?•  Technical, more policy related, behaviour, or a combination?•  What do I find interesting courses / topics?•  Any topic in particular? For me: pedestrians•  Who do I want in my committee?•  Pedestrian experiments à ask and look around!Why at TU Delft?•  I already did an internship•  Do I want to do a PhD or not? Masterclass 4
  5. 5. PhD projectTravel Behaviour Modelling under Exceptional ConditionsWhy do a PhD project?•  Royal Haskoning•  Interesting topic•  Started in November 2010Travel choices people make during for example natural disastersProcess:•  First year: literature study and research proposal•  Now: development of Everscape•  Later this year: final data collection to develop choice models Masterclass 5
  6. 6. EverscapeWho, what and why?Who developed it?•  PrendingerLab (National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan) •  Helmut Prendinger, Eurico Doirado•  Transport & Planning (Civil Engineering, TU Delft) •  Serge Hoogendoorn, Hans van Lint, myselfWhat is it?•  3D multi-user virtual or serious gaming environment Masterclass 6
  7. 7. EverscapeWho, what and why?Data collection methods:1.  Stated preference: •  Hypothetical situation •  Is this what people do in reality?2.  Revealed preference: •  Actual situation •  Hard to reconstruct the actual situationWhy has it been developed?•  New data collection method •  Detailed trajectory and event data •  Virtual experiment in combination with survey afterwards Masterclass 7
  8. 8. EverscapeThe experiment‘Goal’ participants:•  Going to an island to see a concertWhat will happen:•  They arrive by helicopter•  Then they drive to the concert by car•  During the concert: earth quake and tsunami•  In order to survive: evacuate! Masterclass 8
  9. 9. EverscapeEvacuate long route heliport train short route bridge concert tsunami Masterclass 9
  10. 10. EverscapeFirst experiments•  TRB: January 24•  PLATOS: March 14 Movie Masterclass 10
  11. 11. EverscapeTRB Experiment – some results•  Two sessions: 16 and 30 participants•  Most people chose train and long route•  6 people died, 5 of them were women•  Those who chose to run did not surviveMost important: themethod provides usopportunities to collecttravel behaviour data! Masterclass 11
  12. 12. EverscapeThe coming year•  Improve data collection method!•  Think about the following aspects: •  Realism •  Information provision •  Group/household behaviour: group participation •  Herding: include bots (‘extra people’)•  Final data collection: September/October Masterclass 12
  13. 13. Questions / DiscussionTips for choosing your graduation project:•  You can consider it as a test to find out what you want to do after your graduation•  You really need to like the topic and also consider what type of work / activities you want to do (e.g. data collection, modelling)•  Decide who you want / don’t want in your committee, especially who you want as For questions: your daily supervisor Mignon van den Berg m.vandenberg@tudelft.nl•  Ask and look around Room 4.40 Masterclass 13
