Anand, N. (author)
This thesis presents a comprehensive framework for multi-stakeholder analysis of city logistics solutions using agent based modeling. The framework describes different stages for the systematic development of an agent based model for the city logistics domain. The framework includes a multi-perspective city logistics ontology and its validation,...

The flow of trade is not equal to transport flows, mainly due to the fact that warehouses and distribution facilities are used as intermediary stops on the way from production locations to the points of consumption or further rework of goods. This thesis proposes a logistics chain model, which estimates empirically valid transport flows...

Traffic becomes more congested due to the growing demand. As a consequence, improving traffic flow by means of traffic control is a key focus in many countries. However, road traffic is one of the most complex systems to control. In this thesis, a distributed solution for traffic prediction and control is proposed to reduce this complexity and...

In the context of route choice, inertial behaviour shows that drivers make choices that are satisfactory rather than optimal. Consequently, drivers may not necessarily alter their choice when confronted with a travel time increase on the current choice or a travel time decrease of a choice alternative. As a consequence it can be assumed that...

For a recently developed in-car speed, headway and lane use advisory system, this paper investigates empirically advice validity (advice given in correct traffic circumstances), credibility (advice logical to drivers) and frequency. The system has been developed to optimize traffic flow by giving advice on a tactical scale. This scale allows...

Automated driving potentially has a significant impact on traffic flow efficiency. Automated vehicles, which possess cooperative capabilities, are expected to reduce congestion levels for instance by increasing road capacity, by anticipating traffic conditions further downstream and also by accelerating the clearance of congestion. However, the...

This thesis deals with a model predictive control framework for control design of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, where car-following tasks are under control. The framework is applied to design several autonomous and cooperative controllers and to examine the controller properties at the microscopic level and the resulting traffic flow...

Kecman, P. (author)
The potential growth in transport demand in the next decade and beyond requires a change from reactive to proactive traffic control to maintain and improve the reliability of railway traffic. In order to enable an anticipative approach to traffic management, it is necessary to develop the tools for monitoring, prediction and optimisation of the...

Van Wageningen-Kessels, F.L.M. (author)
How to model and simulate traffic flow including different vehicles such as cars and trucks? This dissertation answers this question by analyzing existing models and simulation methods and by developing new ones. The new model (Fastlane) describes traffic as a continuum flow while accounting for different types of vehicles. It is reformulated in...

Speed management is a set of measures to limit negative effects of speed in a transport system. One of the solutions to solve speeding is making the road transport system more intelligent by implementing intelligent speed assistance (ISA). This thesis provides more insight in the factors that can determine the acceptability of ISA by (potential)...

This thesis deals with the optimal use of existing models that predict certain phenomena of the road traffic system. Such models are extensively used in Advanced Traffic Information Systems (ATIS), Dynamic Traffic Management (DTM) or Model Predictive Control (MPC) approaches in order to improve the traffic system. As road traffic is the result...

The dissertation research deals with the design of the controller for a Dynamic Route Guidance System (DRGS) that uses both road side variable message signs as well as in car personal navigation devices. The DRGS is able to determine user- and system optimal route guidance advices in real-time for realistic networks using a model predictive...

Sea Ports are of vital importance to the Dutch economy. If port expansion is perceived necessary by the port authorities, they contact local public authorities (i.e. Mayor & Aldermen). Besides the authorities, most other stakeholders recognize port expansion as a basic need as well. Port planning is carried out according to the procedures of...

Tahmasseby, S. (author)
This research focuses on the influence of reliability of urban public transport services on network evaluation and network design. Public transport services suffer from all kind of disturbances, varying demand patterns, weather conditions, incidents, road works, et cetera. Current practice uses all kinds of operational measures to ensure the...

Multi-modal transport relates to trips for which travellers use two or more transport modes, for example bicycle and train, train and bus, or private car and metro. The main theme in this dissertation is to establish a choice set generation model and algorithm, and demonstrate its validity and feasibility for demand prediction purposes. Choice...

The conceptual design of automated freight transport systems is a challenging matter. It involves many different parties, types of people and disciplines which all have to work together to develop a system which is often new and complex. Automated freight transport systems typically have a long lifecycle, require large investments and can have a...

Reliability of railway operations becomes more and more demanding with increasing train traffic, which asks for stable and robust timetables capable of neutralizing deviations from scheduled time-distance paths and stabilizing delay propagation. Timetable performance evaluation is thus a crucial aspect in the railway timetable design process to...

Reliability of transfers in a transportation network largely influences the level of service of trip chains. Especially in low-frequency service networks like (long-distance) railway networks. Running and dwell times are typically subject to random variations resulting in arrival delays during operation. If a scheduled transfer connection is...

During operation a transportation service may wait on delayed feeder services to secure scheduled transfers. For low-frequent connecting services this has a major positive impact on the transfer waiting times. However, the resulting synchronization control time of the connecting service also affects the waiting times of originating and through...
