All major airport operators face a similar challenge, namely ensuring maximum throughput and maintaining high runway utilisation. A key part of this is accurately planning aircraft movements on the ground to avoid queueing and associated delays. A primary indicator of the operator performance in this area is the Taxi-Out Time. The research...

On-board electric motors can be used to drastically reduce the fuel usage during the taxiing phase of aircraft, leading to cost reductions for airlines and lower amounts of harmful emissions. This study analyses the current state of this innovation and its potential impact on aviation. On a global level, full adoption of electric aircraft...

A Taxi Dispatch Problem involves assigning taxis to requests of passengers who are waiting at different locations for a trip. In today's economy and society, the Taxi Dispatch Problem and other transport problems can be found everywhere. Not only in transporting people, but also in food delivery from restaurants and package delivery for all kind...

In this thesis, we investigate whether maximizing the coverage of taxis can be beneficial when the goal is to minimize the waiting times of the clients. When dispatching taxis, often only current requests are taken into account and not future ones. We examined how beneficial it can be to take coverage into account. For taxi companies it is...

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...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...

Operational towing is a taxiing strategy to reduce the fuel consumption during the taxiing phase of a flight, which decreases the cost and environmental impact of taxiing. Currently, no operational electric towing systems are available that are fully electric, independent from the APU and are capable of towing both narrow- and wide-bodied...

In an increasing urbanizing world the need for efficient transportation methods is growing. Ridesharing, sharing a taxi trip with multiple passengers, has been proposed as an effective way to contribute towards solving the traffic problems that arise in city centers. Current solutions to the problem are often more focused on optimality, and a...

Capturing the individual’s behavioral responses to the actions driven by market and government will always be an interesting activity towards a broad spectrum of society. It could not be neglected that an individual may have different views in responding towards a new policy intervention or a new product market. However, references to use of the...

Decentralised air traffic control shifts decision making to a local level, allowing decentralised controllers to focus on solving local conflicts. Since decentralised controllers have accurate local information at their disposal, they can adapt quicker and more efficiently to changing conditions. Consequently, it is suggested that the dynamics...

The taxi procedure at an airport refers to the surface movement of the aircraft between the parking position and the runway or vice versa. Nowadays, aircraft tend to taxi with the main engines, even if they are not optimized for it. Using an alternative suitable taxiing system that fulfills the requirements of the taxi procedure could be a...

Dit project behandelt de programmering en toepassing van een taxiservice, waarbij de passagiers zich vanaf of naar het treinstation willen verplaatsen. Met behulp van geheeltallig lineair programmeren wordt bepaald welke ritten door de taxi's moeten worden gereden, om de winst te maximaliseren. Dit model is gebaseerd op het model wat beschreven...

Growth in air traffic demand and increasing attention for environmental impact of the air travel industry and airports has spurred the innovation of the Electric Taxi System (ETS). The ETS incorporates an electric motor in the main or nose landing gear of an aircraft, powered by the auxiliary power unit (APU) of the aircraft. The system allows...

The goal of this research project was to develop and test an online, automated taxi movement planning tool, that optimizes the timed taxiing routes of all aircraft on an airport, by minimizing the impact on the environment. Automatic taxi planning tools have been developed before, but the emissions have never been included before as a factor in...

In de Amsterdamse straattaxi-industrie zijn vandaag de dag nog steeds verschillende problemen voor vooral de taxigebruiker te observeren: geweigerde korte ritjes, te hoge prijzen, ongehoord gedrag van chauffeurs. De dieperliggende oorzaken als informatieasymmetrie en marktmacht zorgen er uiteindelijk voor dat de consumenten de taxi negeren en...

This thesis presents a discrete-choice model as the basis to forecast market shares for high-end water taxis in the San Francisco Bay Area. Waterborne mobility studies are growing in numbers, but studies towards the potential of personalized versions thereof is scarce. Three service concepts are designed as business models and compared on...
