Traffic Engineering

The main objective of the Traffic Engineering Research Group is to carry out cutting-edge research in the area of Traffic Flow Theory and Operations. Our ultimate goal is to improve transportation systems and move them towards a sustainable state. To achieve this, researchers and students in this group work together conducting both empirical and theoretical studies. We apply scientific knowledge to develop state-of-the-art and pragmatic solutions. Read more...

Transport Systems

Both society and economy demand mobility that is efficient, safe and environmentally friendly. Especially public transportation systems are expected to play a vital role in this. Consequently, its design and operation are challenging tasks. Read more...

Transport Planning

The Transport Planning Group under the direction of Prof. Axhausen focuses on the measurement and modelling of travel behaviour. Conceptualising choices as taking place for the long term and dependent on those for the short term, it has built up a set of method and data set to explore everyday behaviour. Recently new insight were gained in human activity spaces, variability of daily behaviour, route and mode choice and the relevant survey methods.

The core application frameworks are disaggregate microsimulation and aggregate equilibrium approaches. Building on large scale national and international models developed by the group innovative work has been undertaken for the estimation of central cost-benefit parameters, such as value of travel time savings, value of a statistical life saved and value of travel time reliability.
