        Research projects

        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.
        Capacity building program in urban mobility and transportation
        Sponsor: State Secretariat for Economic Affairs
        Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Yousef Maknoon (PM), Riccardo Scarinci (PM), Yuki Oyama (PM)
        Period: September 01, 2016-September 01, 2019
        The purpose of this project is to develop graduate curriculum in urban mobility and transportation. The relevant courses of this curriculum will be available in MOOC format. This program is a collaborative project between Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and Urban Transport Systems Laboratory (LUTS) and Transport and Mobility Laboratory (TRANSP-OR) at EPFL.
        TRANS-FORM: Smart transfers through unravelling urban form and travel flow dynamics
        Sponsor: The Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC)
        Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Shadi Sharif Azadeh (PM), Riccardo Scarinci (PM), Yuki Oyama (PM), Nicholas Molyneaux, Nikola Obrenovic
        Period: March 03, 2016-March 03, 2019
        TRANS-FORM, a cooperation between universities, industrial partners, public authorities and private operators, will develop, implement and test a data driven decision making tool that will support smart planning, and proactive and adaptive operations. The objective of the project is to better understand transferring dynamics in multi-modal public transport systems and develop insights, strategies and methods to support decision makers in transforming public transport usage to a seamless travel experience by using smart data. The tool will integrate new concepts and methods of behavioral modelling, passenger flow forecasting and network state predictions into real-time operations. TRANS-FORM is funded under the European Commission Horizon 2020 ERA-NET program.
