Travel Mode Choice Flowchart and Model Evaluation (This problem is to be completed in team pairs and submitted individually ; it contributes to your homework grade) For this problem, you will work with a partner from your team. You will practice developing flowcharts from written text and practice evaluating models. A. Your team will be broken into pairs to work on this problem, but both pairs will be working on the same problem. Note that you will work in these pairs for a number of weeks. B. Read the memo from Ollie Fiji below. Internal Memo To: Engineering Team From: Ollie Fiji, Executive Director, E3 Trans Consultants Re: Student Travel Mode Choice As you know our firm has been hired by the University of Central Florida’s Department of Physical Facilities Management which is working with the UCF Board of Trustees to develop the next Campus Master Plan. Four different models have been developed (by other engineering teams within E3 Trans Consultants) to predict students’ travel mode choice on the UCF and other university campuses. Your task is to refine one of these models and ultimately implement the revised solution in MATLAB. The aim is to create a simple and elegant model with a predictive power that is appropriate. Further, the model needs to be well rationalized. ENGR 13200 Ideas to Innovations Part II Spring 2012 Results from a UCF student survey are stored in an Excel file travel_mode_data_final.xls . The travel mode options for each student are walking, driving, or taking the bus/shuttle. Each trip starts when a student leaves the door of his/her homes and ends when s/he arrives at the door of the campus destination. The data provided includes these variables and the actual travel mode used by the student. The table below describes the data.
