Understanding how the brain works has always been a challenge for humankind, for<br/>both cognitive and clinical purposes. Neurosurgery is believed to be the oldest medical specialty, dating back to ancient times [1]. Today, neuroscience combines the advances in neuroimaging technology and signal processing, and while the mystery of the brain...

Cycling is increasingly receiving attention in research and policy and practice, in many cities and regions in the world. The focus is mainly on cycling infrastructure and effects on travel behavior and health. The economics of cycling have not received a lot of attention yet. This chapter gives an overview of the current state of knowledge...

Accessibility by distinguished transport modes is probably the most important concept in transport geography and transport planning: it expresses that the transport system aims to provide access to places where people want to carry out activities. But it is also a concept for which many definitions and indicators are available, each...

This article highlights four common pitfalls in the use of statistics in the area of traffic psychology. Through computer simulations of scenarios that are typical in the field, it is first shown that a statistically significant P-value does not prove that the effect is true, especially when the effect is surprising and the P-value barely...

Transportation's effects on health and well-being are widely recognized. In the near future, autonomous vehicles (AVs) are expected to revolutionize transportation options and ways of travel. Consequently, the effect of AVs on population health and well-being is a crucial topic of interest for transportation policymaking, one that has...

Automated driving systems promise a tremendous amount of benefits. Especially when applied in the domain of public transport, economic and passenger advantages are thought to be manifold. As technology rapidly advances, and projects involving automated buses appear throughout the world, investigating how its users and surrounding road traffic...

This chapter explores the extent to which the adoption of highly automated vehicles (AVs) will lead to carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) emission reduction in the future. Additionally, policy implications are given. Based on existing literature, this chapter shows that the adoption of AVs will result in a modest improvement of CO<sub>2</sub>...

This chapter gives an overview of the current debates on residential self-selection and presents a related research agenda. Here, we define residential self-selection as “the tendency of people to choose residential locations based on their travel abilities, needs and preferences.” Debates relate to theory/causalities (including the role of...

In this chapter, we present a methodological approach for Smart Mobility that integrates three key features: prediction, optimization, and personalization. They are integrated in such a way that when a travel menu is offered, predicted conditions are considered in the attributes of alternatives and optimized system-level policies are maintained....

Fast and large-angle attitude slew maneuvers often imply simultaneous use of multiple actuators such as thrusters and reaction wheels (RWs). A fault in any of these actuators might lead to partial or full damage of sensitive spacecraft instruments. In this paper, a model-based Fault Detection and Isolation (FDI) strategy is proposed, which aims...

The present paper investigates the generation of cure induced residual stresses during the cure stage of the Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Moulding (VARTM) process for the fabrication of ultra-thick components (i.e. 105 mm) for wind turbine blades manufacturing (i.e. root insert). The viscous-elastic material characterisation of the Airstone...
