Priya Ramakrishnan has started to work on her MSc project about the minimisation of CO2-emissions due to road works. The project will investigate how road works can be planned (in time) and set up (e.g. lane configurations) in such a way that CO2-emissions will be minimal.
On Tuesday May 12th, 2020, Stefan Klomp defended his MSc thesis on a new microscopic control algorithm for ramp metering. His report has the title Ramp metering: a microscopic control approach – A case study for the Netherlands.
On Friday November 29th, 2019, Moyu Zhou defended her MSc thesis on the effetiveness of ramp metering with a mix of automated vehicles. Her report is titled Analysis of Current Dutch Traffic Management Effectiveness with Automated Vehicles: A Ramp Metering Case Study.
Jeffrey Geudeke has started to work on his MSc project about the intelligent control of intersections. The project develops and tests new control strategies using parametrised control and a prediction model. The control strategies are calibrated and compared with traditional ones using microscopic simulation, for a number of intersections on the N14 near The Hague.
Moyu Zhou started working on her MSc project on the effectiveness of traffic management measures if automated vehicles start to enter the market. The project investigates the effectiveness of ramp metering for different penetration rates.
On Monday September 17th, 2018 Aiko Dokter defended his MSc thesis on strategies for active platoon formation in mixed traffic (normal and automated vehicles) under contested circumstances. His report is titled Active platoon formation in congestion with Dynamic Dedicated Lane Sections (DDLSs).
Sander van Maarseveen defended on Tuesday December 12th, 2017, his MSc thesis on the impacts of truck platooning at motorway on-ramps. His report is titled Impacts of Truck Platooning at Motorway On-ramps – Analysis of traffic performance and safety effects of different platooning strategies and platoon configurations using microscopic simulation.
Aiko Dokter has started to work on his MSc project about platooning strategies for cooperative automated vehicles (CAVs). The project develops and tests platooning strategies under different circumstances, but always in mixed traffic with low penetration rates of CAVs. The strategies can be spontaneous ones or designed and they are tested with simulation.
On Monday March 27th, 2017, Liza Hodenius defended her MSc thesis on unbundling of traffic flows and under what circumstances this unbundling is good for society. Her report is titled Unbundling of traffic flows – Which situations and which circumstances are beneficial for unbundling?
Sander van Maarseveen started his project on the effects of truck platooning on merging. The project investigates what the traffic performance and safety effects of truck platooning on the motorway are, in the situation of conventional vehicles merging at an on-ramp and for different platooning strategies and platoon configurations.
