Francesco Corman, Disruption Management in Railway Networks

Francesco Corman, Disruption Management in Railway Networks A major problem of public transport, and railways in particular, is to improve quality of operations by updating an offline timetable to the ever-changing delays situation, in order to improve performance of the transport system. In railway systems, this relates to reducing train delays by reordering, retiming, or…

Ricardo Daziano, Immersive Virtual Reality Environments for Travel Behavior Analysis The transportation ecosystem is moving toward new modalities and technologies. At the same time, technology is enabling new ways to collect and analyze travel-behavior data.  In fact, developments in the technologies related to virtual reality (VR) and gaming platforms can be used to produce highly realistic, immersive, and interactive experiences for data…

Dengfeng Sun, Stochastic Optimization of Large Scale Air Traffic Flows

Dengfeng Sun, Stochastic Optimization of Large Scale Air Traffic Flows Most research in control and optimization of networked dynamical systems heavily relies on the fidelity of the dynamics models and efficient computational techniques to execute optimized control actions, while many autonomous systems are inherently subject to uncertainties and disturbances. This talk will present some of…
