Passenger Transport Systems: Networks, Operations and Behavioral Models
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Conceptualize research problems from the area of passenger transportation along the dimensions strategic – tactical – real-time and network – operations – behavior;
- Devise and discuss basic principles of different methodological approaches to solving passenger transport related problems, such as graph representation, optimization, heuristics, and simulation;
- Motivate their modelling choices, position them in relation to alternative approaches and examine their suitability and shortcomings;
- Develop a research proposal addressing a scientific research problem in the domain of passenger transport systems, incorporating concepts and methods pertaining to networks, operations and behavior.
