Pedestrian dynamics: flows and behavior
Sponsor: Swiss National Science Foundation
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Bilal Farooq (PM), Riccardo Scarinci (PM), Antonin Danalet, Flurin Hänseler, Marija Nikolic
Period: April 01, 2012-March 31, 2015
This project aims at developing mathematical models of pedestrian dynamics, both at aggregate and disaggregate levels. Integrated and holistic mathematical models will handle the complexity of this unique transport mode and help us to answer open research questions. in the future, such foundations will also allow to create the tools society needs to better understand pedestrian dynamics.
Léman 2030: Flux piétons Gare de Lausanne
Sponsor: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB)
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Michaël Thémans (PM), Bilal Farooq (PM), Flurin Hänseler, Antonin Danalet, Sohrab Sahaleh
Period: October 01, 2011-July 15, 2012
In the framework of a 9-month collaboration with CFF, pedestrian flows in Lausanne train station are estimated and modeled. Specifically, an estimation methodology for pedestrian origin-destination demand is developed and applied to predict a demand scenario for 2030. By means of a pedestrian flow simulator, several infrastructure scenarios are quantitatively evaluated, the result of which helps CFF to design and dimension pedestrian underpasses of Gare de Lausanne for the future.
SIEU : Urban Energy Information System
Sponsor: The Ark Energy
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Antonin Danalet (PM), Antonin Danalet
Period: September 01, 2011-June 30, 2012
The role of local authorities in reaching climate and energy goals is important. Consolidated data about energy at the local scale is necessary in order to fully measure the effects of policies and to adapt action-plans. The goal of this project is to evaluate the feasibility of a single platform with all the relevant energy data for a local authority, in particular statistics about mobility.
SURPRICE: Sustainable mobility through road user charging
Sponsor: Swiss Federal Road Office
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI&PM), Antonin Danalet
Period: July 05, 2010-October 03, 2011
Equity effects of congestion charges and intra-individual variation in preferences. A joint research initiative between: Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden (lead), The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zürich, Switzerland and Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland
OPTIMA: Inferring transport mode preferences from attitudes
Sponsor: LaPoste
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Anne Curchod (PM), Aurélie Glerum, Bilge Atasoy, Antonin Danalet
Period: February 01, 2009-June 30, 2012
Swiss Post and PostBus have launched a research project to optimize mobility in cooperation with the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), represented by EPFL Transportation Center, under Professor Michel Bierlaire. This will show the market potential for combined mobility. Among other things it will look at the factors that influence travellers in their choice of transport. At a later stage, target group-specific new transport offerings and services will be developed and tested, which will have a lasting influence on this choice. The three years research project is conducted by Professors Vincent Kaufmann (LASUR) and Michel Bierlaire (TRANSP-OR).
