The question of how well in terms of safety can a driver take over control of an automated vehicle in response to an emergency situation is of crucial importance. Most of the studies performed so far focus on the drivers’ reaction times and the mechanisms behind the transition. In this study, an effort is made to incorporate the braking times...

The train network is a vital link within the mobility chain. Several aspects in the mobility chain are changing, for example the alternatives in modes and the trip types of passengers. The rail network with the vital locations as stations and the operation of the services on the network seem to be less adaptive, while the travel behaviour of...

The operation of automated vehicles in shared areas requires attention with respect to the interaction between AVs and vulnerable road users, including cyclists. Currently, the programmed interaction behavior of AVs is based on the knowledge of the interaction between conventional vehicles and cyclists. However, cyclists may react differently to...

The term last-mile delivery refers to the final leg of a business-to-customer service, in which a product is shipped from a depot to a final destination point by means of land transportation, such as vans and small trucks. Although they provide a common and easy way to consign products, companies are striving for new transport technologies to...

Investing in urban transit is necessary to fuel urban growth and sustainable mobility. Decision making for public transport projects usually involves long term forecasts of travel demand. Future development of factors that influence those forecasts and hence the expected net societal benefits of the investments are uncertain. Decision makers may...

Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) is an innovative concept which has the potential to deliver a convenient mobility option to travellers. It provides the supply of multi-modal and demand-driven mobility services which includes custom made travel options with real-time information. This all is shared with the use of a digital platform to the customer....

The development of automated vehicles offers advantages for the transportation systems of the future. As a result, new and unknown challenges within the field of transportation arise. Moreover, there are uncertainties within the behavioural responses of travellers and amongst other things, the changes in the modal split within the transportation...

In this research, a methodology to assess the Operational Design Domain of Lane Keeping Assistance System equipped vehicles is developed. The method is mainly intended for use by manufacturers of semi-automated vehicles to assess the situations and conditions in which their lane keeping systems that are already available in the market, can and...

Truck platooning is seen as a method to reduce truck emissions and labor hours in the transport industry. The effect that truck platooning will have on the other traffic receives less attention. In this thesis a methodology is proposed to model truck platoons, including a platoon level controller for lane changing. The model is used to estimate...

Vehicle automation has the potential to disrupt the status quo of urban transportation, because it adds a new mode of transportation by taking away the task of the driver. The projections of estimations of the impacts of this new technology are based on many uncertainties and are thus largely unknown. A literature review showed that a wide...

Currently last mile parcel delivery is becoming more and more of an issue. More people are ordering their goods online, these goods need to be delivered to home address in urban areas. Using the parcel lockers of PostNL this research looked into the question how to make last mile logistics more cost efficient and sustainable using parcel lockers...

Ethical considerations in transportation planning literature have gotten more and more attention in the previous decades. One of those considerations is about how equitable (“fair”) the good of transportation is distributed. While there have been theoretical suggestions to incorporate equity into transportation planning methods, the proposed...

This study explores the possibility of developing a short-term traffic flow prediction model that can be used to convert installed adaptive controllers to predictive controllers with minimal hardware changes. By using the prediction model’s outputs to virtually trigger vehicle loop detectors, the outputs of an adaptive controller can be...

As the airports keep on growing, the need to offer sufficient landside public transport access becomes more important. When the public transport stations at airports have a hub function within the network, challenges arise that need to be identified. Within this thesis report, a method is proposed to analyze the challenges.
