  • Publication number: 20210325199
    Abstract: The transport allocation planning system includes a transport allocation planning apparatus that creates a transport allocation plan and a user apparatus communicably connected to the transport allocation planning apparatus. The transport allocation planning apparatus transmits an inquiry related to a movement demand of the user to the user apparatus, receives an answer to the inquiry, estimates a movement demand of the user based on the answer, and creates a transport allocation plan based on the estimated movement demand. The user apparatus stores sensor information that is information indicating a current state or a past state of the user apparatus and a utility calculation model for calculating utility of the user during a movement, calculates the utility of the user by applying the sensor information to the utility calculation model, generates an answer to the inquiry based on the calculated utility, and transmits the generated answer to the transport allocation planning apparatus.
