Master class – Road Traffic Modeling and Control

March 21, 2016 12.45 h

On 21 March 2016, TRAIL PhD student Bernat Goñi-Ros will defend his PhD thesis “Traffic Flow at Sags: Theory, Modeling and Control” at Delft University of Technology.

On the occasion of his public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a master class: ‘Road Traffic Modeling and Control’. In this master class, four lecturers will present traffic flow modelling and control from their point of view. The master class balances between the application of state-of-the-art technologies in vehicular communication and driver-assistance systems, the newest techniques to simulate traffic flow correctly and reliably.
