Transport and Mobility Laboratory: Research projects

TRANSP-OR

All topics

We identify new solutions to transportation problems, on the ground, in the air, or on the sea, transport of people or goods, whatever the mode. We focus on technical solutions, but also on their impact on the system as a whole. We are also interested in the interactions of the transportation systems with the land use, the economy, the environment, etc.

Optimization of individual mobility plans to simulate future travel in Switzerland

This project, joint with Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) will develop a new activity-based modelling approach based on optimization of individual daily mobility plans. This approach will be implemented within SBB's existing nationwide model for Switzerland for investment and service planning decisions for future transportation.

OrgVisionPro: Automated organizational design and 
optimization

This project, joint with CLEAP S.A., is will develop advanced analytics algorithms to propose organization design (OD) scenarios based on the existing situation, constraints, and future needs of a business. These scenarios will support organizations in shaping their future by optimizing their structure and operating models.
