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...

Due to connectivity problems, the attractiveness of public transport is limited. Policymakers aim to increase the modal share of public transport to protect the accessibility, livability, safety, sustainability and efficiency in the cities of the future. Applying Autonomous Mobility on-Demand (AMoD) systems as a feeder service for public...

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...

Highway construction zones post a danger to both road workers and road users because of the change of road condition and speed variance. Driverless maintenance is expected to improve traffic safety by removing road workers from work zones. This study investigates the feasibility of implementing driverless maintenance in dynamic highway...

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...

In the past few years, the research and development of automated driving have made significant leaps in bringing theory into reality. Forecasts suggest that highly automated vehicles (SAE Level 4) may be on the streets and highways within the next decade. However, current road infrastructure is designed for human drivers, and may not be able to...

The future brings Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs), where platooning with small inter-vehicle time gaps is possible. However, before the situation that the entire car park exists of CAVs, there is a transition period. This MSc. thesis has developed two strategies (in MOTUS), to let CAVs actively form platoons with dynamic dedicated lane...

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...

This thesis describes a methodology for adding information about the preferences for new modes from external discrete choice models to exisiting transport demand gravity models. The methodology consists of 4 steps: (i) translation of deterrence functions towards discrete choice utility functions; (ii) linearization of non-linear translated...

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...

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...

In this research, insight is gained into the impacts of truck platooning on traffic performance and safety at motorway on-ramps in mixed traffic using microscopic simulation. Thereby different platooning strategies and platoon configurations are considered, that for instance differ in desired platoon inter-vehicle gaps and platoon sizes. The...

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...
