Mobility Decision Science

Identify the transportation energy impacts of potential travel and lifestyle decisions and understand the human role in the mobility system.

INL is researching how personal decisions impact the transportation network and how we can understand and predict how people will act and decide on future choices - and thus how we might expect transportation to develop. INL looks at several kinds of behaviors and is investigating activities such as:

  • How consumers and fleets with electric vehicles will choose to charge their vehicles
  • Understanding consumer attitudes and transportation history through a detailed transportation survey
  • Understanding consumer behavior through survey results and location tracking
