This paper presents calibration methods for individual's and household's activity-travel scheduling models. Various model parameters are calibrated such as the parameters in marginal activity utility function and the coefficients of intra-household interactions. Numerical methods for solving the model calibration problem are optimized based on the mathematical property of the models. Hypothetical numerical experiments are conducted to generate time-series data for model calibration.
