The Air Transport & Operations (ATO) group believes that high efficiency, safety, reliability, and resilience of air transport operations can only be achieved by using adaptive operations. Plans can be rapidly re-optimised and adjusted to new information about the air transportation system and its components.
The increasing availability of data, the advances in modelling techniques, and the growing of computational capabilities enable the development of innovative artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and optimisation methods to provide digital solutions for adaptive operations. Primarily following data-driven solutions, the ATO group contributes to the understanding and optimisation of air transport processes and supports the coordination among different stakeholders at different operational levels. Furthermore, following the current environmental challenges and the EU climate goals, part of the research effort in the group is studying how new technological developments, such as electric taxiing and electric/hybrid aircraft, could be incorporated into novel operational concepts to accelerate the greening of aviation further.
Ingeborg de Pater attends ESREL conference & wins Professor Stein Haugen Paper awardThe first week of September, I attended the ESREL conference (European Conference on Safety and Reliability). The conference was held in Southampton this year, where the weather was unexpectedly warm and nice. Southampton is an old harbour city in the south of the United Kingdom.
Airport Technology Lab (ATL) Showcase Event & Hackaton - Digital Airport as a SolutionWe kindly invite you to the Airport Technology Lab* Showcase & Hackaton event, where we will be presenting two exciting days filled with insightful presentations and engaging roundtable discussions. The ATL is a digital driven fieldlab at RTHA in which different parties can jointly develop and test new products and services. TU Delft (AE, EEMCS, IDE) has been actively involved from the start.
The event will take place on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 June at Albeda Rotterdam The Hague Airport College in Rotterdam.
