On-demand ridesharing services, such as Uber and Lyft, and autonomous vehicles are significantly changing the landscape of transportation and mobility. In light of these disruptions, we aim to determine consumer preferences with regards to transportation and use this data to simulate and analyze the urban effects of smart mobility solutions. We collect behavioral data using Future Mobility Sensing (FMS), a smartphone and prompted-recall-based integrated activity-travel survey, and create simulations using the data with SimMobility, a simulation platform that integrates various mobility-sensitive behavioral models with state-of-the-art scalable simulators to predict the impact of mobility demands on transportation networks, intelligent transportation services, and vehicular emissions. Enhancing these projects with on-demand preferences, individual patterns, and incentives as inputs, we aim to simulate and analyze a wide range of viable smart mobility solutions.
