The rapid growth of the PV industry has meant that prices have been falling steeply, making them more accessible for a wider range of applications. The combined use of noise barriers as energy generating facilities, usually coined as PVNBs has been occurring since the late 80’s. It has not realised wide spread implementation, remaining mostly in...

The air cargo market is experiencing momentous developments that may impact strongly on future trends. A consolidation shift has been observed, by more integration of the supply chain. Integrators engage in forwarding, forwarding agents operate their own aircraft and airlines bypass the forwarding agents, by striking direct structural deals with...

An autonomous vehicle should be able to operate amidst numerous other human-driven vehicles, each driving on its own trajectory. To safely navigate in such a dynamic environment, the autonomous vehicle should be able to predict trajectories of the vehicles operating in its vicinity and use these to plan its own path. Most related work uses a...

A pilot for a large scale, fully integrated chain of CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS) has been initiated in the port of Rotterdam. The initiative aims to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of CCS and show that it can be deployed on a large scale for power plants and energy-intensive industries that emit large volumes of...

Despite continuous efforts to improve, the construction industry is prone to failure of large infrastructure projects in terms of time and cost overruns. It is believed good interface management is contributing to the success of infrastructure projects. The research has been executed at Heijmans, a major contractor in the Netherlands. The...

Cycling is one of the main transport modes in the Netherlands and the total number of bicycles and the total cycling distances are still rising. Although this seems a positive development, the number of seriously injured cyclists due to bicycle crashes without motor vehicles increased rapidly in recent years. Within these crashes the...

The Utrechtseweg provincial road is situated in the centre of the Netherlands, following the edges of the lateral moraines of both the Utrechtse Heuvelrug and the Veluwe massief. The road has a long history as being bo a landscape structuring lane and the main road infrastructure between the cities of Utrecht, Arnhem, and Zutphen, and the...

Low powered electric vehicles and electricity generation with the help of renewable energy technology are two kind of technological advancements which are taking place to meet growing global energy demand while reducing greenhouse gas emissions together at the same time. Achieving these objectives indicate shift from energy demand followed by...

Throughout the history of pavement structure, the parallel layer structure has dominated the structural design of pavements. In other words, the entire road pavement share a uniform thickness design regardless how many lanes there are. However, due to traffic regulations and driving habits, the traffic flow most probably does not distribute...

The technology of automated driving systems that assist the human driver are in ongoing development and could potentially improve traffic safety and efficiency. At this moment, a lot of research into automated vehicles is carried out. The City of Amsterdam wants to know what impact AVs can have on traffic safety in their city. Most studies focus...

Contractors are moving from traditional maintenance to preventive maintenance. To apply preventive maintenance, up-to-date data is required which is unavailable. The goal is to research the applicability of crowdsensing to detect road pavement distresses, and to investigate how the positions of these detections can be used to gain information on...

Automated Vehicles (AV) will be introduced on public roads in the near future. This would result in automated vehicles sharing the urban space with other road users including drivers of traditional vehicles and vulnerable road users. Pedestrians might be unable to distinguish the vehicle type (traditional or automated) they are interacting with...

Freight transporters use software kits to plan the routes for their trucks. Breaks required by the European drivers legislation are nowadays planned as late as possible. However, in some cases it is beneficial to plan these mandatory breaks during waiting time, such as truck driving bans. In this thesis this problem is addressed by computing...

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...

Speeding behaviour and driver distraction cause relative unsafety at highway work zones and amongst young male drivers. Adding further safety measures to the infrastructure has adverse effects as drivers may compensate for improved safety by driving faster. This study investigates whether in-car warnings on a head-up display (HUD) improve speed...

As world urbanization continues apace and total population increases, there is an immediate demand for better monitoring and exploitation of space. In view of the above, the “Smart Cities” concept has been developed and numerous efforts are made to deploy technology to this end. The main information needed for city development and planning is...

Thirty years ago Willem Jan Neutelings graduated on a study of the potential 'Ring Culture' of Antwerp. He saw a zone in the city where mass culture could develop and showcase itself to the public in the verge of the ring road. In Amsterdam, in the year 2017, under the pressure of the massive urban growth and the ambition to realise that growth...

Many road widening projects are only profitable when there is a high growth in traffic intensity in the future which is uncertain. Therefore, it could be beneficial to apply real option analysis in which the costs and benefits of flexible alternatives, e.g. in delay and phasing, can be assessed. Real option analysis is not often applied in...

In Dutch design guidelines it is presumed that merging tapers are unsafe compared to the standard merger design. However, this presumption is not scientifically underpinned and therefore it is unclear whether this presumption is correct and if merging tapers are indeed unsafe. Design guidelines for merging tapers are neither scientifically...
