Seminar – Next Generation Transport and Traffic

February 3, 2020 12.45 - 15.30 h

On 3 February 2020, TRAIL PhD researcher Paul van Erp will defend his PhD thesis “Relative Flow Data: new opportunities for traffic state estimation” at Delft University of Technology. The defence is public, and you are invited to join.

Moreover, on the occasion of this public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on “Next Generation Transport and Traffic”.

Traffic and transport systems are rapidly developing. The new technologies have a large effect on the urban system, and the transport system. In this masterclass we will be discussing new research developments in this area. We will discuss so at various levels. We start at the highest level, in which the size and structure of cities is discussed. Then, the traffic operations at the urban level are disused. Finally, we will discuss the added value of detailed data for a single road for traffic monitoring, using advanced and high-resolution floating car data.
