A new generation of intelligent Traffic Light Controllers uses Model Predictive Control to minimise delay at signalised intersections. The conventional cycle of set sequences of green phases is dropped for optimisation purposes. This research uses the ethical theories utilitarianism, egalitarianism, sufficientarianism & deontology to define...

In our increasingly digital society, we are making a growing amount of data available to computers, networks and third parties. As a consequence, our sensitive data is in danger of getting exposed. The field of multi-party computation attempts to mitigate this by studying protocols that enable parties to perform their operations digitally,...

Optimization of traffic signal control has been widely investigated by means of model-based strategies. In 2012 a new model-based controller was published, named Schedule-driven Intersection Control (SCHIC). This controller uses a job-scheduling algorithm to minimize the cumulative delay for all observed vehicles. The algorithms of SCHIC are at...

This master thesis presents an experimental study on 3D person localization (i.e., pedestrians, cyclists)in traffic scenes, using monocular vision and Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR) data. The performance of two top-ranking methods is analyzed on the 3D object detection KITTI dataset. In this evaluation, the effect of the Intersection over...

Signalized urban intersections are bottlenecks for traffic and cause congestion. To improve traffic signal plans, research efforts have been made to create self-adaptive traffic controllers, i.e. controllers which adapt in real-time to the current traffic demand based on connected vehicle data. Past research on self-adaptive controllers has...

Road intersections have a large impact on road accidents and travel delay. Applying infrastructure, such as stop signs and traffic lights, are supposed to prevent collisions on the intersection. However, such methods contribute to the travel delay, while accidents still occur due to human errors. Considering the rise of automation within...

One of the most important bottlenecks that contributes to the congestion of traffic is nonoptimal traffic signal control. Techniques that have been investigated to optimise traffic signal control have been focused on improving the traffic flow through individual intersections. However, if intersections are optimised based on only reducing local...

Fixed-time control and vehicle-actuated control are two main signaling strategies implemented at intersections for urban traffic management. The timing and structure of the controllers are usually designed optimally based on average historical demand patterns at the intersection. Under the premise of performance quality assurance, both fixed...

Understanding pedestrian traffic is essential to design for safe and reliable pedestrian infrastructures, facilities and operations. For the assessment and design of pedestrian transfer areas at stations capacity standards for uni- and bidirectional flows are applied. It has been observed that, at railway stations, also other configurations of...

In the last two decades there has been a steady rise in the gathering and use of 3D geo-information. A common way to store and use 3D data is by using 3D city models. In 3D city models, geo-information can be stored at different levels of detail. CityGML, the most commonly used data model and encoding for 3D city models, uses five levels of...

We are living in the Anthropocene; a period of time shaped by, and for, dominance of the human race. Barely a place or species sharing this earth remains unaffected by our activity. Humans treat other animals as commodities, objects available to be exploited. They are used for our gain and pleasure, at great cost to those individuals involved...

In the European Union Road freight transport volume is expected to grow 78% between 2000 and 2030, which results in more trucks on the road network. The worldwide estimated trend shows an increase of 150 million freight vehicles and an increase of 240 million passenger vehicles. The growth of both vehicle classes will have a major impact on the...

This project adds back quality to the living conditions of the most dense district of Casablanca. By providing the district Maârif with a common center, I consolidate the currently disconnected neighborhoods. The main program on this site is focused around education. Education here is being used as a social equalizer and to communize the...

Traffic congestion at signalized intersections is a big economical and ecological problem. Handcrafted traffic light controllers (TLCs) are currently used to minimize the impact, but they are expensive to design and maintain and their performance degrades over time. Predictive TLCs and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) form a potential...

To reduce the number of traffic accidents on the roads, nowadays computers are aiding humans or taking over control from humans in vehicles. The necessity of Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) in vehicles is growing. New vehicles are being equipped with ADAS, like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), to avoid head-to-tail collisions. Still,...

This master thesis aims to gain new empirical insights into longitudinal driving behavior by means of the enumeration of a new hybrid car-following (CF) model which combines parametric and non parametric formulation. On one hand, the model, which predicts the drivers acceleration given a set of variables, benefits from innovative machine...

Congestion and emissions have lately been termed as one of the major challenges for the urban traffic network through various governmental bodies. In this work, a potential solution to this, namely a functional combination between platooning and traffic- adaptive intersection control is first developed and then evaluated. The evaluation is...

Current research on automated vehicles focuses mainly on the drivers of automated vehicles, on its potential to improve the efficiency of traffic operations, safety, congestion and societal benefits, public’s acceptance of automated vehicles as a transport system and the willingness to buy automated vehicles. Nevertheless, there is a research...

In this MSc Thesis project, a Model Predictive Controller (MPC controller) using variable speed limits and intersection control was designed and subsequently evaluated. The design was based on combining existing control algorithms for urban and freeway networks, integrating them. While this MPC controller improved upon throughput more than MPC...

De Vries, M.N. (author)
When looking at domains with several building densities, the resulting average concentrations caused by traffic when unknown, are often linearised between known building densities. To verify if this assumption is correct, several cases of street canyons with intersections, are simulated using the DALESURBAN model. The traffic is represented by a...
