Improvements of or technological advancements in the transportation systems have always influenced the demand for traveling and activity scheduling of people. Disruptive inventions like the invention of wheel or locomotive have brought substantial changes. Autonomous vehicles are promising to do the same. Consequently, there is a need for suitable tools to model these changes. In this paper we present improvements of a previously developed methodology for activity rescheduling in a multi-agent transport simulation (MATSim). In order to address some of the limitations of the previous approach an alternative approach to score the activities performed by agents during the day is proposed. The results show that the proposed alternative activity scoring function is able to ensure that agents perform their activities with the desired duration. It performs on the same if not better level than the current scoring function. Moreover, it provides higher level of flexibility which is needed in order to more realistically simulate activity adding or dropping. The rescheduling algorithm with the proposed activity scoring function reacts and adapts the activity schedules of agents with the right magnitude and sign Show more
