Stay period: from September 2023 to June 2024

Research area: Modelling of international transport corridors

Short description of the research area:

International transport corridors (ITCs) are intricate logistical networks essential for global trade flows. The effective modeling of these corridors provides invaluable insights into optimizing the transport system. However, existing approaches have significant limitations in dynamically rep-resenting the complexities and uncertainties inherent in ITC operations and at the early stages of ITC development when data are limited. The study proposes a novel methodology for developing Petri net based macro-models. The model is scalable, enabling analysis from an international perspective down to specific country segments. The proposed modeling approach and scalability provide strategic insights into optimizing corridor efficiency. This research delivers a streamlined yet comprehensive methodology for ITC modeling using Petri nets. The modeling framework can be a substantial potential for enhancing logistics system analysis and planning.

Research area: Design and modelling of adaptive autonomous vehicle’s control system

Short description of the research area:

With the development of transportation organization technologies of transport companies and the technical characteristics of the logistics infrastructure, the need for competent specialists arises. The smooth development of the technological infrastructure of transport companies must ensure rational strategic decisions of logistics specialists and avoid wrong assessment of the situation. At the operational level, the efficiency of the use of technological equipment and the quality of logistics services are ensured by the engineering (technological) competencies of the transport company’s logistics specialists. Failure to assess the connection between the development of the technological infrastructure of transport companies and the engineering competences of logistics specialists from a systemic point of view affects the amount of costs allocated to the renewal and/or acquisition of the company’s technological infrastructure. The lack of these funds affects the intensity and timeliness of infrastructure renewal, the efficiency of its use and the quality of transport services.

Evaluating the engineering competences of logistics specialists using empirical research methods and digital modeling aims to determine the links between the technological development of transport companies and the engineering competences/abilities of logistics specialists.

Stay period: from 25.06.2019 to 06.09.2019

Research area: Design and modelling of adaptive autonomous vehicle’s control system

Short description of the research area: As modern active safety systems in the last decade increased traffic safety noticeably, the common interest of the general public in the field of autonomous vehicles keeps growing. Respectively, the future of autonomous vehicles, i.e., the realization of the envisaged benefits, such as increased driving safety or improved transportation efficiency and public acceptance, will depend on their ability to safely move in real road networks and various traffic scenarios. It is important to note that two of the most important keys to the autonomy are realised through trajectory planning and control algorithms. Due to these reasons, the aim of the research is to develop an adaptive autonomous vehicle control algorithm, which will ensure a safe and reliable real-time trajectory following possibility for an autonomous ground vehicle, while the vehicle is moving in different traffic scenarios.

Stay period: 14/10/2013 to 1/11/2013

Research area: Transport and emission modelling

Short description of the research area: The research during the stay has been focused on the calibration and simulation of transport models in Madrid and Riga.

The case study in Madrid corresponds to a section of the M-30 ring motorway which is normally used by buses coming from North Spain and accessing to the main bus station in Madrid. In this section, a variable speed limit system have been put into operation in last month.

This research tries to find how this ITS influence the traffic performance and how this could affect the assignment in the macro model. The first step carried out during this STSM has been to program a script which simulates the effects of VSL in an already existing traffic micro model (VISSIM).

After that, we have studied how to link the VISSIM outputs with the VISUM macro model. Speed-Intensity curves have been analysed in order to obtain data to adjust the volume-delay functions (VDF) in VISUM, which will influence in the assignment model.

Procedures to calibrate both models have been discussed, analysing also literature provided by TTI colleagues.

In the framework of these case studies simulations, EnViVer software was also used in order to analyses VISSIM output and provide information about emissions and air quality.
