Cycling as a mode of transport is getting increasingly more attention from academics and governments around the world. It improves the physical and mental well being of citizens, it is efficient in terms of space and it provides economic benefits. However, traffic engineers and urban planners of these cities currently lack the means to...

The traffic density of small aerial vehicles operating within urban environments is expected to increase significantly in the near future. This urban environment is highly constrained due to being limited to the low-altitude airspace directly above the existing road network. Multiple studies have addressed factors influencing the capacity of...

Increasing demand for passenger services in densely populated urban environments, are currently covered overwhelmingly by private vehicles. Their impact on CO2 emission, present a serious obstacle to the reduction objectives, in the Netherlands alone the target of 45% by 2030, for limiting the global warming to 1.5°C degrees. Autonomous Vehicles...

The gradual deployment of automated vehicles on the existing road network will lead to a long transition period in which vehicles at different driving automation levels and capabilities will share the road with human driven vehicles, resulting into what is known as mixed traffic. Whether our road infrastructure is ready to safely and efficiently...

This study aims to quantify the impact on the traffic flow performance of different regulation strategies for a centralised route guidance system where road authorities and service providers work together in a coordinated approach. Previous research concentrates on the effect of a centralised route guidance system when every vehicle participates...

Modern societies are heavily relied on efficient transportation systems for mobilizing people and goods. These systems are mainly constituted by road traffic networks. Currently, traffic demand is immense and perpetually increasing with unprecedented rates that traffic congestion has become an imminent subsequent. Over time, all this human...

“Everything somewhere” or “something everywhere” is the classic dilemma concerning the development and implementation of the future generation of vehicles, i.e., automated vehicles (AVs). Both strategies include diverse policy options that could significantly impact road networks’ planning, design, operation, and utilization. Until now, no...

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...

Ever increasing traffic load on freeways calls for smart solutions to improve throughput. With the uprise and standardization of C-ITS, accuracy and latency of traffic state measurements are immensely improved, while the span of control is increased. In this paper, a traffic control algorithm that aims to prevent breakdown at recurring...

The flight planning process is an extensive and long process to direct and maintain a high level of operations within the airspace. As air traffic demand grows year after year, it's worthwhile to optimise the European air traffic system further. One way of optimising the system, is by creating optimal flight schedules that solve for demand...

To intrigue more people to cycle, it is essential to assess the current design of the cycling infrastructure to guarantee the efficiency and safety for the users. A credible simulation of cyclists is helpful to evaluate different designs of infrastructure and point out the problem. A valid simulation model requires proper verification and...

With an increasing number of automated vehicles (AV) appearing on roads and interacting with conventional traffic, there is a need for improved simulation approaches to replicate and forecast the resulting effects. Interactions between AVs and their drivers, and interaction with other human drivers involve new types of complex behavioural...

This paper presents a collision avoidance algorithm to prevent bird strikes for aircraft departing from an airport. By using trajectory-information of aircraft and birds, the algorithm predicts potential collisions. Collision avoidance is performed by delaying departing aircraft until they can follow a collision-free trajectory. An...

Sags are roadway sections along which the gradient increases gradually in the direction of traffic. Sags are generally bottlenecks in freeway networks. Previous research suggests that traffic management measures using advanced Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems could reduce congestion on freeways, but little is known about their potential...

New developments in the automotive world have the power to change mobility, but because of high uncertainties, municipalities are adopting a wait-and-see attitude. Nonetheless, autonomous, connected and shared vehicle technologies are in a far stage of development and it is only a matter of time before AVs and SAVs enter urban traffic. This...

Incorporation of more sophisticated human factors (HF) in mathematical models for driving behavior has become an increasingly popular and important research direction in the last few years. Such models enable us to simulate under which conditions perception errors and risk-taking lead to interactions that result in unsafe traffic conditions...

With trajectory data, a complete microscopic and macroscopic picture of traffic flow operations can be obtained. However, trajectory data are difficult to observe over large spatiotemporal regions—particularly in urban contexts—due to practical, technical and financial constraints. The next best thing is to estimate plausible trajectories from...

Safety measurement and analysis have been a challenging and well-researched topic in transportation. Conventionally, surrogate safety measures have been used as safety indicators in simulation models for safety assessment, in control formulations for driver assistance systems, and in data analysis of naturalistic driving studies. However,...

This thesis is assessing the effects of (Cooperative) Adaptive Cruise Control using microscopic and mesoscopic simulations in Aimsun. The Gipps car-following model is manipulated in such a way that it represents (C)ACC driving behavior to a satisfactory extent. A simulation network of a part of the A15 highway containing the junctions Ridderkerk...

Large-scale agent-based social simulation is gradually proving to be a versatile methodological approach for studying human societies, which could make contributions from policy making in social science, to distributed artificial intelligence and agent technology in computer science, and to theory and modeling practice in computer simulation...
