Serious game research: fleeing an earthquake

Serious game research: fleeing an earthquake

During natural disasters, such as an earthquake, people make choices: should I stay or leave? Should I walk or take the car? These choices have an impact on the number of people injured or killed. To explore the factors that influence these choices, doctoral candidate Mignon van den Berg worked with Japanese researchers from the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo on the development of the serious game ‘Everscape’. Mignon van den Berg will be awarded her doctorate at TU Delft on Monday 12 December.

‘Matrix signs, rush-hour lanes and regulated slip roads more effective than anticipated’

‘Matrix signs, rush-hour lanes and regulated slip roads more effective than anticipated’

Solutions to reduce traffic jams often involve more asphalt and tolls, while less attention is paid in public debate to measures such as matrix signs, rush-hour lanes and regulated entry on slip roads. Yet these measures may have more impact than first anticipated. As suggested by improved models which take account of unpredictable factors such as weather and fluctuating traffic flow. On Thursday 26 May, Simeon Calvert will be awarded his PhD at TU Delft for his work on the subject.
