Taale, H. (author)
In The Netherlands, dynamic traffic management is an important approach to minimise the negative effects of increasing congestion. Measures such as ramp metering and route infor-mation, but also conventional traffic signal control, are used for this. Traditionally, the focus in designing traffic control plans has been on local control. There is...

In Transport Sciences different implementations of Utility Theory are commonly used for the description and prediction of human choice behaviour. Almost 30 years ago Kahneman and Tversky proposed an alternative behavioural-economic model of choice behaviour called Prospect Theory. In contrast to Utility Theory they assumed that preference orders...

This thesis took the policy-analysis framework of Marchau and Walker (2005) as a starting point for assessment and valuation of road and railroad noise impacts and its consequences for noise policy. Four research questions were answered. To what extent can international data on noise, often produced by using different national calculation...

New railways? Extra roads? Pricing policies to reduce environmental harmful transport emissions? Politicians face tough choices. What are the costs of these proposals? Will the plan result in the expected impacts? What are the risks of a plan? Who wins, who loses? This thesis is about the Dutch practice of helping public decision-making by...

Congestion is a serious problem in many countries around the world. Consequently a lot of effort is put in inventing smart methods for reducing congestion. Whether these measures lead to the desired effect appears to be largely dependent on the driving behavior of individual road users. It is therefore not surprising that the effects of measures...

The objective of this thesis is to create a distributed, multi-agent, approach to traffic control. This PhD thesis' focus is on the control of a network instrumented by traffic signals.A thorough literature study has been performed, reviewing the current state of the art in traffic signal control. On the basis of this literature survey, a...

Houtenbos, M. (author)
Given the high number of encounters in traffic and the low number of accidents in which these result, it can be concluded that road users are quite good at interacting safely. To achieve a better understanding of this interactive behaviour, this thesis focused on road users' expectancies. In an explorative study, the aspects road users mention...

Nuttall, A.J.G. (author)
Worldwide belt conveyors are used to transport a great variety of bulk solid materials. The desire to carry higher tonnages over longer distances and more diverse routes, while keeping exploitation costs as low as possible, has fuelled many technological advances. An interesting development in the recent past is the distribution of drive power...

Gietelink, O.J. (author)
This thesis presents new tools and methods for the design and validation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs). ADASs aim to improve driving comfort and traffic safety by assisting the driver in recognizing and reacting to potentially dangerous traffic situations. A major challenge in designing these systems is to guarantee high...

Yuan, J. (author)
A trade-off exists between efficiently utilizing the capacity of railway networks and improving the reliability and punctuality of train operations. This dissertation presents a new analytical probability model based on blocking time theory which estimates the knock-on delays of trains caused by route conflicts and late transfer connections in...

Daamen, W. (author)
This thesis describes the developement of a new type of simulation tool for the assessment of designs of public transport facilities (stations, airports) and other public spaces with intensive pedestrian flows. Since the available space for such facilities is increasingly under pressure, the space efficiency and walking comfort is becoming more...

Van der Spek, S.C. (author)
In the Netherlands, travellers transfer from one mode of transport to another millions of times a day. In all, billions of minutes are lost during these transfers. Most of this time is taken in actually moving from one mode of transport to another, waiting time at a stop or station, and time lost when connections are missed. Travellers are more...
