    ACTIVITY BASED TRAVEL DEMAND FORECASTING
    Sponsor: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB)
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Tim Hillel (PM), Janody Pougala
    Period: March 01, 2019-March 01, 2020
    This research project aims to update and improve the microscopic activity-based demand model developed and maintained by SBB. Specifically the research intends to address the following questions: 1. Ownership of mobility instruments: Which metrics and specifications can be added to the current model, in order to improve its ability to forecast mid-and long-term ownership of mobility instruments? More specifically, how can the notion of accessibility be integrated to the current model to capture more complex mode interactions? 2. Mode choice model: Can a tour-based approach be used to model mode choice? In addition, how can the processes to estimate destination and mode choice (currently nested) be combined to generate results that are consistent with observed mobility behaviors at different time horizons (short, mid, and long-term)? 3. Tour and activity generation: How can the generation of tours and activity patterns be combined to allow modelling of joint decisions?
    PAM Personal Autonomous Moving platforms
    Sponsor: Schindler
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Yuki Oyama (PM)
    Period: November 15, 2018-May 14, 2019
    In this project, Schindler and TRANSP-OR imagine a revolution of urban mobility focused on pedestrians. The Personal Autonomous Moving (PAM) platforms are similar to hoverborads or segways, and move from a point A (origin) to a point B (destination) on their own and carry the user with minimum interaction. They are a light mode of transport that does not require large space or infrastructural investment for the installation. This innovative mode of transport is ideal for short distance trip in large pedestrian facilities such as university campuses, larger business districts and airports as well as city centers. A great advantage is the possibility to directly access elevators with PAM platforms. This could lead to a real three-dimensional mobility taking advantage of elevators already installed in buildings. A possible deployment of this system generates several scientific and technological challenges. TRANP-OR focuses on the research questions that are related to the algorithms and mathematical models used by decision support tools needed for the planning and operation of the system.
    Design of a car-free city center: a fringe parking system with accelerated moving walkways
    Sponsor: European Commission
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Yuki Oyama (PM)
    Period: October 01, 2018-September 30, 2020
    This project is conducted on a fellowship "The EuroTech Postdoc Programme". A car-free city center is a valuable solution for decreasing traffic congestion and CO2 emissions, and improving active mobility and quality of life. To achieve these goals, one of the biggest challenges is the relocation of parking places scattered in the inner district, which cause cruising for available parking as well as car inflows. A possible solution is a fringe parking system, which groups parking into a limited number of spots on the border of the district. However, this may decrease the level of accessibility moving the parking away from the final destinations. The key idea of this research is to use accelerated moving walkway (AMW), a novel transport system, in combination with a fringe parking system to design a car-free city center with high accessibility. The goal of the research is to propose and identify the optimal configuration of a fringe parking system with AMWs, as a solution to city centers. The main methodologies are network design optimization and traffic assignment.
    Accessibility based optimization of educational infrastructure networks
    Sponsor: World Bank
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Riccardo Scarinci (PM)
    Period: January 01, 2018-December 31, 2018
    The aim of this project is to propose a methodology to assess and optimize educational infrastructure networks based on accessibility. In 2014, the World Bank launched the Global Program for Safer Schools (GPSS) with a focus on integrating risk reduction considerations into education infrastructure policies and investments. The GPSS aims to boost and facilitate informed, large-scale investments for the safety and resilience of new and existing school infrastructure at risk from natural hazards, contributing to high-quality learning environments. Understanding accessibility of school infrastructure networks is an important element to optimize risk reduction interventions as well as to improve the quality and efficiency of the educational service. To support this goal, the Transportation and Mobility Laboratory proposes a methodology to assess and optimize educational infrastructure networks based on accessibility; and proposes solutions to improve the performance of educational infrastructure networks. In other words, researchers will evaluate the risks based on the school network, including parameters like transportation network, home location of the students, mobility patterns... They will then provide a methodology in order to help direct investments to reduce the risks in case of disaster.
    Incorporating competitors' behavior in demand based optimization models
    Sponsor: Swiss National Science Foundation
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Virginie Lurkin (PM), Stefano Bortolomiol
    Period: November 01, 2017-October 31, 2020
    The starting point of this research project is the general framework developed in the SNF research project 200021_165636 entitled Incorporating advanced behavioral models in mixed integer linear optimization. The project aims at formulating explicitly the complex interaction between the supply and demand actors. We hypothesize that the decisions of supply actors (such as capacity, assortment, and price) are highly influenced by the decisions of other actors, through competition within the market. In this project, we will therefore explicitly consider multiple operators that compete for the same pool of customers. Each operator will take the supply-side decisions that optimize its performance function (e.g., maximization of revenue). Non-cooperative game theory is commonly used to model such oligopolistic competition. We plan to investigate how to integrate these games in the already developed framework. In this context, the objective will be to analyze the concept of equilibrium, that is, stationary states of the system where no actor has an incentive to change his/her decisions.
    Leveraging Public and Open Data for Transportation Mode detection
    Sponsor: Swisscom
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Marija Nikolic (PM), Riccardo Scarinci (PM)
    Period: September 04, 2017-September 04, 2018
    Modern smartphones are more than just calling devices. They harbor a wealth of information that provides the transportation field with a new potential. In this project, researchers will create a transportation mode detection model based on telecommunication data from smartphone users combined with public transport-related data sources. The researchers are provided with anonymized telecommunication traces. As those data remain scarce, additional data will be identified from external sources including network infrastructure, route maps, time schedules in static or real-time form, microcensus, weather, etc. A probabilistic model will be developed to infer the transportation modes from those various data sources. The project lasts one year, and will be carried out by the Transport and Mobility Laboratory, directed by Prof. Michel Bierlaire. It is sponsored by Swisscom.
    Network Design for SBB Cargo
    Sponsor: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB)
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Nikola Obrenovic (PM), Virginie Lurkin (PM)
    Period: September 01, 2017-August 31, 2018
    This project aims at developing an algorithm for the overall design of SBB cargos network of bundling points. SBB Cargo operates a network of 2 marshaling yards, 65 shunting yards and about 350 of small bundling points. The operation as such is costly and the network might contain redundant bundling points. The overall interest of SBB Cargo is to minimize the operating cost of their network and to compare its performance to a better network, completely designed from scratch. The resulting framework is then planned to be used to improve the current network of SBB cargo and its future development. The main research challenge of this project is to incorporate the SBB Cargo needs into one model while taking into account the specifics of the railway network and its operation. The researchers from the Transport and Mobility Laboratory (TRANSP-OR) will develop a heuristic algorithm that gives as an output a complete network design based on the inputs (cargo demand, capacity, types and costs of different bundling points). The algorithm can be further adjusted by entering the already existing bundling points. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm will be tested thorough comparison with existing solutions. TRANSP-OR, led by prof. Michel Bierlaire, has a track record of successful projects of solving highly complex problems arising in industrial sector. This one-year project is sponsored by SBB-CFF-FFS.
    Cost reduction using passenger centric timetabling
    Sponsor: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB)
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Virginie Lurkin (PM)
    Period: September 01, 2017-August 31, 2018
    To design their timetables, train-operating companies mostly focus on operational aspects and cost. In Switzerland, a paradigm of transportation planning is to create regular-interval timetables (a.k.a. cyclic timetables) which aim for maximal transfer connections, simplicity and hence user friendlyness. SBB uses travel simulation models to predict the impact of timetable changes on travel demand and revenue. Mathematical timetable optimization methods are not yet used by SBB. But a recent EPFL thesis (2016) shows that the timetable itself has a significant impact on the performance of the operator in terms of the number of transported passengers: a timetable design that considers the behavior of passengers leads to higher revenue(s), market share(s), higher value of passenger-km etc. In this project, the aim is to use the optimization methods developed by the TRANSP-OR Lab consisting in combining cyclic and non-cyclic timetables and apply it to the Swiss Federal Railways timetable design. The goal is to evaluate the performance of the current Swiss interval timetable and to compare it to the optimal one. Suitability of hybrid timetables for the Swiss railway network will be investigated. This one-year project is carried out by the Transport and Mobility Laboratory, led by prof. Michel Bierlaire. TRANSP-OR has vast competence in modeling, optimization and simulation of transportation systems. The project is sponsored by SBB CFF FFS.

    Incorporating advanced behavioral models in mixed integer linear optimization
    Sponsor: Swiss National Science Foundation
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Shadi Sharif Azadeh (PM), Meritxell Pacheco
    Period: April 01, 2016-March 31, 2019
    Discrete choice models are used for detailed representation of the "demand". However, their complexity makes mathematical formulations highly non convex in the explanatory variables. On the other hand, Mixed Integer Linear Programs (MILP) are optimization problems with discrete variables that are used in many applications to design and configure the "supply". In this project, we propose a new modeling framework that allows to include any random utility model in a mixed integer optimization formulation. The heterogeneity of demand is captured within the general choice model framework and the offers are tailored in a way that is beneficial for users as wells as providers. The main objective of the project is to obtain a framework that is both general, so that it can be applied in many applications, and operational, so that it can be used in practice.

    Air navigation platform: flights planning by using real-time weather data
    Sponsor: Commission pour la technologie et de l'innovation, Office Fédéral de la formation professionnelle et de la technologie.
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Yousef Maknoon (PM), Shadi Sharif Azadeh (PM)
    Period: March 02, 2014-September 02, 2015
    Flying safer, cheaper, faster are keywords of this new service. This project aims at integrating an automatic route planning system, tightly coupled with the real-time meteorological data, taking into account energy consumption of the mobile device hosting the application. The route will be computed in real time on mobile devices using the information of weather forecast and respecting to the constraints such as airspace/airport restriction and terrain avoidance, etc. The energy efficient implementation of the routing application is crucial, to provide routing information to the pilot during the entire trip. This becomes challenging, as automatic route planning often requires complex algorithms. In this project, we will target at a three-dimensional flight route-planning problem and design an efficient but robust algorithm to solve the problem. The project will last 18 months. It is conducted by TRANSP-OR in collaboration with the Xample Sàrl, ICARE Institut de recherche and Haute Ecole Spécialisée de Suisse Occidentale (HES-SO).

    Period: December 01, 2013-November 30, 2016
    <p>The goal of this project is to explore the future of mobility through the role of the car. The main originality of this research is to raise the following problem: What, if the world were a post-car world. The basic idea is to define a hypothetical situation where the place of the car would have been dramatically reduced and to use qualitative and quantitative simulation methods to examine the consequences of this initial hypothesis. The research is based on the idea that by simulating the future through scenarios we can understand the present better. This project is fully interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary. It brings together social sciences, engineering sciences, urban planning and urban design in six different laboratories associated to three different universities.</p> <p>The role of TRANSP-OR in this project is to study and optimize an innovative transport system based on accelerated moving walkways (AMW). Differently from constant moving walkways, AMW can reach speeds up to 15km/h thanks to an acceleration section. The project aims to identify the optimal design of a network of AMW using optimization. A network of accelerated moving walkway in a car-free urban environment may present an innovative solution, and this project could delineate the system feasibility.</p>
    Revisiting the Route Choice Problem: A Multi-Level Modeling Framework for Route Choice Analysis Based On Latent Constructs
    Sponsor: Swiss National Science Foundation
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Matthieu de Lapparent (PM), Evanthia Kazagli
    Period: October 01, 2013-September 30, 2016
    This project aims at developing behavioral models integrating the latent constructs that drive travel behavior. The objective of the project is to set the foundations of an innovative framework that facilitates the analysis and prediction of route choice behavior. Motivated by the complexity of the route choice models, we build on solid ground of the current state of the art and add on it by proposing a new approach that reduces model complexity and brings great flexibility to the analysis. The approach is inspired by the fact that people break down the complexity of the environment by forming representations of their surrounding space. Following this reasoning, we replace the conventional representation of routes which is based on paths, i.e. link-by-link sequences on the network model, with more aggregate elements that we denote as mental representation items. This key feature of the framework allows us to reduce the complexity of the model and at the same time is more behaviorally realistic.

    Pedflux: Pedestrian flow modeling in train stations
    Sponsor: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB)
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Michaël Thémans (PM), Riccardo Scarinci (PM), Flurin Hänseler
    Period: April 01, 2012-March 31, 2015
    The aim of this collaborative research project between the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB-CFF-FFS) and EPFL's transportation center is to analyze, model and optimize pedestrian flows in train stations. In recent years, the growing number of passengers has led to difficulties related to pedestrian flows in major train stations. Congestion of pedestrian walkways is increasingly becoming a problem during peak hours, but also due to clustering of people caused by major events or the beginning or end of holiday season. When capacity limits for pedestrian facilities are reached, normal operation of train schedules can be significantly impaired. Since train stations are important nodes within the multimodal public transportation system, it is of major importance that they are operated as efficiently as possible. In addition to the increase in passenger numbers, train stations have been undergoing a profound transformation from simple transit nodes towards versatile hubs that provide interface to short and long-distance train connections, to other modes including private transport by foot, bike and car, as well as to the city offering public space for shopping, eating and alike. This transformation leads to a further increase in pedestrian numbers and additionally introduces new behavior patterns. A sound understanding of pedestrian flows within a train station can help improve overall level of service, customer experience and safety. The main focus of this study lies on the development of a methodology allowing to estimate pedestrian origin-destination (OD) demand within a train station. Specifically, train time table, customer survey data and flow observations from an exhaustive camera system are used as sources of information in this process. Subsequently, the modeling frame work is applied to several case studies in Switzerland.
    A DYNAMIC VEHICLE CHOICE FORECASTING FRAMEWORK
    Sponsor: PSA Peugeot-Citroën
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Amanda Stathopoulos (PM), Aurélie Glerum
    Period: April 01, 2012-April 30, 2013
    The aim of this research project is to develop a dynamic model framework to forecast car demand. The model-system jointly accounts for behavioural variables (e.g. household evolution, individual motivations), institutional factors (e.g. incentives and taxation) and market features (e.g. new fuel or vehicle technology launches) to forecast vehicle acquisition. The project benefits from a large-scale, longitudinal dataset on vehicle transactions from major European markets. Methodologically the framework consists of a system of aggregate, disaggregate and duration-based choice models, accounting for dynamic features of the decision at each stage. Importantly, the proposed dynamic framework enhances realism by representing the durability of possession, rapid changes in value across product and ownership cycles and uncertainty about future market developments and institutional factors. The proposed framework sheds light on the timing and type of vehicle ownership, illustrating the benefits of taking the first steps away from a static approach. The findings will aid the prediction of consumer behaviour in response to critical policy variables, such as incentives, alongside market dynamics, such as the appearance and diffusion of novel technologies. A deeper understanding of future vehicle choice behaviour is critical given sizable institutional and industrial investments to promote alternative vehicle technologies with a final aim to improve energy efficiency in the transportation sector.

    Period: January 01, 2011-April 30, 2014
    The primary objective of this research is to develop large scale robust optimization algorithms providing sustainable solutions for bulk port operations accounting for uncertainties and disruptions in operations. While significant contributions have been made for container terminals, relatively little attention has been directed to the use of operations research methods and techniques to optimize bulk port operations. In this research we aim to develop large scale mathematical models for bulk port operations, with emphasis on integrated planning; furthermore, we plan to include robustness to account for uncertainties in operations. A broader objective of our work is to study how the methodologies developed for bulk ports can be extended to multi-modal transport operations, including other domains such as container ports, airlines and railways, with a view to optimize the usage and operations of existing infrastructure to achieve sustainability in the mobility of goods and people. The devised models and algorithms will be tested and validated in a real-world context using as a case study, the SAQR port in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.
    CLIP-AIR concept: Integrated schedule planning for a new generation of aircrafts
    Sponsor: EPFL Middle East
    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Bilge Atasoy (PM), Matteo Salani (PM)
    Period: November 01, 2010-December 31, 2013
    Sustainability has become a key topic in transportation in the last decades where the aim is to reduce the impact of transportation on the environment. One of the most important paths toward sustainability in this sector is to optimize transportation operations required in several dimensions to fulfill a given transport demand. To achieve this goal in the context of multimodal transport, there is a clear need for flexibility in capacity. This flexibility is adequately provided by a new concept developed at EPFL, named Clip-Air, for air transport. Clip-Air is a modular innovative aircraft with detachable load units which enable to adjust at best capacity according to demand. The decoupling of the load (capsules) and carrying units (wings) allows for simplified fleet management and maintenance operations for airlines and is expected to improve the ground operations for airports. Clip-Air also provides effective possibility of combining commercial freight and passengers on the same flight without any compromise in comfort. Besides, Clip-Air is designed to operate in a multi-modal context and is expected to improve the multi-modality concept by allowing a better integration between air transport and other transport modes. The objective of this research is to assess the actual impact of Clip-Airs modularity on demand satisfaction, operational costs and environmental issues at the system level. The contributions will consist of models and algorithms designed to perform comparative analysis of operations of airlines and airports in various scenarios.

    Period: October 01, 2010-September 30, 2013
    Smart phones are able to collect a great wealth of information about the mobility patterns of individuals, including their itinerary. In addition to GPS tracks, smart phones contain several sensors and software revealing various aspects of the user's behavior (nearby Bluetooth devices, WiFi antenna, media players, etc.) Route choice models rely on the knowledge of the origin and the destination of the trip, and the transportation mode. They may also benefit from other contextual data, such as the trip purpose or the chain of subsequent activities. We plan to investigate how to infer this information from the smart phone data.
    Optimizing Staffing Plans at Airports

    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Prem Kumar (PM)
    Period: October 01, 2010-October 01, 2011
    Minimizing operating costs for maintaining ground personnel at airports is a complex problem due to uneven flight activities, passenger service expectations and staffing inflexibilities due to shift durations. In this work, we would use the flight schedule and service criteria to develop a method to find optimal shift timings that considers non-productive time due to activity changeovers, the mix of full-time and part-time workers and passenger waiting time criteria.
    Robust Optimization of Railway Locomotive Assignment

    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Prem Kumar (PM), Francesco Piu
    Period: October 01, 2010-September 30, 2011
    Locomotive assignment at Railway companies is a complex problem that must optimally assign a set of locomotives to known, scheduled trains. Each train has a power and traction requirement and locomotives may be available in groups known as "consist". There is a cost involved in breaking or adding a locomotive to a consist. Determining an optimal locomotive assignment that would also be robust to handle delays, maintenance requirements and other unknown factors is a complex problem. We are inspired from the research in a similar, closely related subject in the airline industry and would explore the possibilities of extending the same to railways. This project would be a part of the larger concept of "Flexible Transportation Systems"

    Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Prem Kumar (PM)
    Period: July 15, 2010-July 15, 2012
    This problem corresponds to refueling locomotives at different station yards during the course of its journey. Locomotive tanks have a fixed fuel capacity and prices of fuel vary across yards. In addition, there is a fixed cost for hiring a refueling truck at a yard and every refueling stop that the locomotive makes. Locomotives can power different train sets during a cyclical planning horizon running 14 days. The objective of this exercise is to minimize the total fuel costs fixed and operational for a given set of locomotives, trains and yards. In addition, there are numerous constraints relating to refueling, locomotive tank capacity, refueling truck capacity etc. This problem has similarity to the network flow problem. We formulate this problem as a Mixed Integer Program (MIP) and present our experience in this project.

    Period: March 01, 2009-February 29, 2012
    The CATS project aims to develop a new urban transport service based on a new generation vehicle. Its major innovation is the utilisation of a single type of vehicle for two different usages: individual use or collective transport. This new transport service is aimed at filling the gap between public mass transport and private individual vehicles. It is based on two operating principles: the self service concept where small and clean urban vehicles are offered on a short term rental basis, and the flexible shuttle service where a variable length of vehicles convoy, driven by a professional driver, operates at fixed hours along a line on a permanent basis or on a case by case basis. Four Cristal vehicles and two stations will be made available by Lohr Industrie to the project for experiments. The CATS project will investigate through an in depth mobility needs analysis, on-site demonstration and showcases, the environmental impact and social acceptance of the introduction of such a new system in three different European cities (Strasbourg FR, Ploeisti, RO, Formello, IT). CATS will complement the design and manufacture of the Cristal vehicle via a detailed definition of its operating principles and by a design of its urban settings (stations, infrastructures,) in accordance with cities and citizens needs.
