In response to the growing demand for air travel, major airports are approaching critical thresholds in their infrastructure capacity. As the transportation sector continues to expand, it is increasingly important to address environmental concerns that arise from aspects, such as noise annoyance and fuel consumption. This paper aims to enhance...

The scheduling of engine shop visits quickly becomes a complex problem to solve as the number of aircraft and engines increases. In recent times, different approaches have been used to tackle this problem and optimize schedules, reducing costs and increasing revenue. This paper formulates the ESV scheduling problem as a Markov Decision Process...

This study presents a new approach for integrated tail assignment and maintenance task scheduling decision support. Wasted maintenance resources, restricted fleet availability for schedule flexibility, inconsistent planning, and no emphasis on schedule resilience are all inefficiencies that now arise from airlines' separate and manual tail...

The trajectory planning for a fleet of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) on a roadmap is commonly referred to as the multi-agent path finding (MAPF) problem, the solution to which dictates each AGV's spatial and temporal location until it reaches its goal without collision. When executing MAPF plans in dynamic workspaces, AGVs can be...

Schedule design in the transportation and logistics sector is a widely studied problem. Transport service providers, such as the train industry and aviation, aim for schedules to be on-time according to the planning (i.e., on-time performance or OTP) in order to increase the service level by ensuring that passengers actually make their...

This paper introduces an ontology-based Digital Twin (DT) architecture for the lighting industry, integrating simulation models, data analytics, and visualization to represent luminaires. The ontology standardizes luminaire components, facilitating interoperability with design tools. The calculated ontology-level metrics suggest mid-level...

Automated vehicles (AVs) may transform not only our travel experience but our complete daily schedules. This study analyses the data from an interactive stated activity-travel survey using latent class cluster analysis to uncover the types and prevalence of schedule changes with AVs. The analysis reveals that the majority of respondents expected...

Taxiing aircraft using electric vehicles is seen as an effective solution to meet aviation targets of climate neutrality. However, making the transition to electric taxiing operations is expected to significantly increase the electricity demand at airports. In this paper we propose a mixed-integer linear program to schedule electric vehicles...

Background: Increased maritime trade has led to a surge in drayage operations, causing congestion and environmental issues in port areas. Truck Appointment Systems (TASs) are commonly used to manage truck arrival rates, yet transparency and equity in slot allocation remain problematic, fostering distrust between Licensed Motor Carriers (LMCs)...

Individual pitch control (IPC) is a method to mitigate periodic blade loads in wind turbines, and it is typically implemented using the multi-blade coordinate (MBC) transform, which converts the blade load measurements from a rotating frame into the non-rotating tilt axis and yaw axis. Previous studies have shown that by including an...
