Previous studies on Hyperloop network design, do not show any application of detailed network design process. The current study focuses on network design of Hyperloop considering the case of Switzerland. The study estimates the costs from the literature and estimates demand of network from the Swiss National Passenger Transport Model. These...

In a multimodal network with the bicycle as core, the design of the network is based on the use of the bicycle as access and egress mode. With the bicycle as access and egress mode instead of walking, travellers can travel much larger distances to bus/tram/metro (BTM) stops and train stations while having about the same travel time. This will...

An electric-recharging planning algorithm was developed in this study to accompany a dispatching algorithm that assigns real-time trip requests to vehicles of a shared taxi fleet owned by an operator. The algorithm decides on when, where, and how much each vehicle should charge, in real-time. It will also relocate idle vehicles if needed. The...

With the introduction of Automated Vehicles (AVs), new potential traffic situations could emerge on the roads. Although several studies on AVs have been conducted, most of these studies focus on the AV technology or on the driver, while there is less emphasis on how these AVs could interact and communicate with other road users. The interactions...

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...

This thesis aims to develop a novel control strategy that efficiently controls traffic with different penetration rates by relying purely on wireless communication to integrate the control of automated and human drivers. The new strategy uses the concept of induced platooning to use automated vehicle to indirectly control conventional vehicles....

A methodology for an assessment of resiliency of a transportation system threatened by a disaster has been evaluated as to whether it is applicable in small coastal communities at risk of tsunamis. A case study was carried out in Otsuchi town in Japan. The result shows that, although the methodology is well-designed to apply in different cities...

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...

In this study an analytical model is created that estimates the capacity of a stabling yard with the implementation of 100% servicing. 100% servicing is a new concept developed by NS to increase the quality of trains by increasing the frequency of cleaning and maintenance of trains and improving planning of shunting movements at stabling yards...

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...

Automated driving is propagated to make travel more efficient and to enhance urban spaces. This research invests both these aspects integrally from the perspective of the residential location choice, to find the impacts of automated driving on urban development.<br/>This thesis is the graduation work to conclude my Civil Engineering Master at...

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...

Given the observable characteristics of a passenger in an airport, is it possible to predict their behaviour? This thesis researches the possibilities for finding behavioural classes that can help predict passenger behaviour in a passenger demand forecast (PDF) system that is developed for the European PASSME project. The thesis introduces a...

People are becoming more mobile and enterprising. They go to events or go shopping, which means they walk and they are not alone. Especially in larger cities or at events it can get very crowded, which is accompanied by risks. To guarantee the safety of pedestrians, crowd management has to be applied. Knowledge about crowd management is...

Models are an important tool for decision making. However, in order to get proper results, these models must be validated and only be used in situations where the conditions of the validation apply. Blind trust on a model can lead to unexpected and inaccurate results. Advancements can be made to reduce the number of situations where this occurs....

Congestion on the road is a widely recognized problem. To improve traffic conditions on the road, several methods have been developed over the years. Dynamic traffic management is one of them and has proven to be effective. It aims at making better use of the existing network capacity and at managing traffic flows. In order to further improve...

The Maasvlakte port area in Rotterdam is located in the Netherlands. There are 14 container terminals and empty container depots located within this area, some are existing and some will be built in the near future. At container terminals containers are being transhipped between different modalities. At empty container depots, empty containers...

Transportation engineering is founded on the availability and abundance of data in order to model, forecast and analyse traffic and mobility movements in general. Especially on the macroscopic level, e.g., for the whole of the Netherlands, the data requirements are very big. An innovative source of data is GSM data. Analysing these data is an...
