Digitalization and automation brings many amazing things; games, social media, navigation. However, it also makes us more vulnerable. The facelessness of cyber space and the emancipation of place makes it hard to grasp. Additionally, our personal data becomes more valuable and thereby more lucrative to criminalize. The combination of these...

Different modes of transportation have always greatly impacted the way we as a society view the world. Until the invention of the steam engine, people were still closely bound to their cities and villages as traveling from one city to another could take up a full day. This made it hard to stay in contact with people in different places, but for...

Nowadays, a majority of goods is produced in a significant distance to a consumption market; spaces of production and consumption have become extremely disconnected. For this reason, consumers are not aware of labour and pollution that desired goods create. Large amounts of waste are disposed daily, in particular in well developed countries. But...

Schiphol Airport and Heijmans are working together on the renewal of the Schiphol runways pavements. Currently the top layer is covered with a synthetic antiskid material called ASK. But the strong weather limitations for the installation of this material have opened the door for alternatives. Heijmans has proposed an innovative asphalt mixture...

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...

Continuous Climb Operations aim at improving the efficiency of a flight's climb phase by reducing the number of level-offs. The associated fuel-benefits help airlines and airports to comply with future emission demands, rising fuel prices and modernizing airspace requirements. Previously, most studies in this field only considered the effect of...

Using Schiphol’s Security Scanner is confusing for a lot of passengers. Therefore, security agents currently have to fully take on the task of guiding the passenger through the Scanner. This repetitive task in the high volume environment of Schiphol security leads to physical and mental exhaustion and results in frustration, which is projected...

The core business of an airport is its air-side activities but it could not function without fluent, multi-modal and resilient land-side connectivity with its surroundings. The AirportCity is located in a dense urban area and therefore also the most important land-side transport interchange of the Netherlands. Due to the growth of air travellers...

Amsterdam Aiport Schiphol (AAS) has the ambition of becoming Europe's cargo preferred airport. However, in addition to facing spare capacity for future growth, past research has shown key issues preventing it from reaching this goal. Some of these are truck waiting times, long throughput times and 1st line warehouse efficiency. One of the...

Currently, only one Standard Instrument Departure (SID) track and one flight procedure is used per runway departure fix combination. In contrast to tailored arrivals, the potential benefit of tailored departures has been left relatively undiscovered. The research objective is to quantify the potential benefit of tailored SID-s and profile...
