This paper describes the validation of a route choice simulator known as VLADIMIR (Variable Legend Assessment Device for Interactive Measurement of Individual Route choice). VLADIMIR is an interactive computer-based tool designed to study drivers’ route choice behaviour. It has been extensively used to obtain data on route choice in the presence of...

... This would lead to a combinatorial problem for any methodology. Fortunately, it is common for three to four paths to carry the vast majority of transport O/D flow, and very rarely are more than six or seven routes utilized (Bonsall et al. 1997;Hazelton 2000). So, H I has the maximum limit of paths ðψÞ ¼ 7. ...
... Sharing the asset of mobility shouldn't create a monetary surplus, because I particularly want to explore how forms of shared movement that are organized and operate beyond a market rationality of growth and profit-maximization relate to the goal of a socio-ecological mobility transition. Non-commercial carsharing (known as non-profit car clubs in the UK) hasn't been researched much in transport and mobility research, as I only found one article and two reports on it within the last 20 years [26][27][28]. Due to this lack in research no clear quantitative comparison can be drawn with commercial carsharing. ...
... However, extensive work by Yonelinas [19,20] has provided empirical evidence to suggest that learning novel associations such as a new route is associated with the construct of recollection; whereas the construct of familiarity only supports novel learning under very limited conditions. Thus, studies that train drivers over a short period of time on preset routes, often capture responses that mainly reflect recollection-conscious experience of remembering associated with when or where an item was studied; versus familiarity-conscious experience of knowing, which cannot necessarily discriminate when or where an item was studied [19][20][21]. ...
