Learning Outcomes

After successfully passing the module, students are able to - understand relevant problems, especially due to fast system dynamics and conflicting goals in the selection of measures - to apply the taught methods in a differentiated way (data collection, traffic monitoring, information provision, real-time traffic management) in the different application domains (individual transport, commercial transport, rail transport, public transport)


Topics of the event: - How is information on the traffic situation generated? - When should passengers be informed about a public transport incident and how can they react? - Which methods and models can be used to account for the fast dynamics of traffic in planning and real-time control? - What distinguishes open loop from closed loop control? - Which traffic models are used to plan control measures in real-time traffic management systems? - How can the control mechanism of a fleet of autonomous vehicles react to spontaneously arising demand? - In addition to the theoretical basics, simulation-based application examples from the field of fleet management of autonomous or electric vehicles and traffic control are taught. - Furthermore, aspects of toll systems will be discussed (city toll/Toll Collect).
