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.
On Monday September 12th, 2016, Charalampos Sideris defended his MSc thesis on the optimisation of merging behaviour with Intelligent Transport Systems. His report is titled Congestion minimisation by optimising merging behaviour through Intelligent Transportation Systems.
On Wednesday August 17th, 2016, Marco de Baat defended his MSc thesis on the choice of lane change strategies of drivers, found by a driving experiment and a questionnaire. His report is titled Emperical Investigation of Strategy-Based Lane Change Choice.
On Thursday February 4th, 2016, Michel Meulenberg defended his MSc thesis on the development and testing of a new adaptive ramp-metering algorithm, based on the commonly used ALINEA algorithm. His report is titled A possible new adaptive control approach for ramp metering
