Seminar – New Developments in Evaluating ITS

September 13, 2016 12.00 - 16.30 h

On May 26th, 2016, PhD student Simeon Calvert defended his PhD thesis “Stochastic Macro­scopic Analysis and Modelling for Traffic Management” at the Delft University of Technology.

On the occasion of his public defence, TrafficQuest, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on ‘New Developments in Evaluating ITS’. In this seminar four lecturers will present developments in traffic management and new methods to determine the effectiveness. The seminar gives insight in the role of information, use of data for modelling, the newest techniques to simulate traffic flow correctly and reliably and new methods for evaluation. The presentations will focus on the relation with ITS.

This seminar is aimed at a broad audience, varying from students to policy makers and people working in the field of ITS. Advanced pre-knowledge of traffic management or evaluation techniques is not required. After the seminar, participants will have a good overview of developments. The lecturers are known for their lecturing capabilities and their knowledge in this field.
