Professor Serge Hoogendoorn Distinguished Lecture - 4 April 2017
TRANSITIONS IN TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT & ITS
LECTURER: PROFESSOR SERGE HOOGENDOORN, DELFT UNIVERSITY
In many countries, cities are expanding in terms of size, number residents and visitors, etc. The resulting increase in concentration of people, with their mobility needs, causes major traffic and transportation problems in and around our cities. Next to the economic impacts due to delay and unreliability of travel time, concerns regarding safety and security, emissions and sustainability become more and more urgent.
ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) hold the potential to reduce these issues. In the past decade, we have been more and more successful in making better use of the available infrastructure by using traditional ITS measures. As we will show in this talk, key to this success has been in achieving a profound understanding of what are the key phenomena that characterise network traffic flows, and designing solutions that capitalise on this.
