Survey ALLEGRO project
The survey in the links below investigates factors that influence decisions we make while cycling and is part of the ALLEGRO project. It should take 5-7 minutes to be filled in. There is a Dutch and an English version, hence two links, but it is also possible to switch language within the survey. Thank you in advance for your participation!
Rolf Dollevoet en Rob Goverde: voorkom ‘ATB Vv-eilandjes’ bij uitrol
De spoorsector dient te voorkomen dat er bij de uitrol van het Europese beveiligingssysteem ERTMS ‘ATB Vv-eilandjes’ ontstaan. Dat zeggen Rolf Dollevoet en Rob Goverde in reactie op de plannen van het kabinet om tot en met 2030 alleen de drukst bereden spoorlijnen met ERTMS Level 2 uit te rusten
TU Delft researcher improves modelling for effects of kilometre charge
It is highly likely that some form of kilometre charge will be on the political agenda during the present talks on the formation of the new government. However, there is much room for improvement in the models used to predict the effects of a kilometre charge. Erik-Sander Smits has combined know-how from game theory, choice analyses, traffic flow theory and the transport economy to create a better modelling. On Tuesday 16 May the NWO researcher will be awarded a PhD at TU Delft for his work on this subject.
Nieuwe website Project Co-ReUs
Transport & Planning maakt deel uit van een breed consortium, verenigd in het CO-REUS project (Co-creating Responsive Urban Spaces). In dit onderzoeksproject werkt het lectoraat Bouwtransformatie van de Hogeschool van Amsterdam samen met ca. 25 organisaties (stedenbouwkundigen, interactieve conceptontwikkelaars en lokale stakeholders) aan de toepassing van interactieve objecten in de versterking van de openbare ruimte van de ArenA Boulevard.

Last week professor Lóri Tavasszy reached an agreement with the International Transport Forum (ITF) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to become a partner in the Decarbonising Transport project on the topic of freight transport and logistics.
Participants needed - Msc thesis research
Are you willing to help in a research regarding the reactions of pedestrians when interacting with different types of vehicles? Do you have 60 minutes of spare time and would you like to get a gift voucher of 10 € while helping a student carrying out her MSc thesis? Then this might be interesting for you!
GPS on the road
Today - on a straight stretch of road in the Europoort-area near Rotterdam - we carried out an experiment with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) in a convoy of three vehicles; a blue van in the lead, followed by two instrumented Toyota Prius cars. All vehicles were equipped with low-cost GPS receivers - targeting centimeter position accuracy.
SimSmartMobility simulation platform launched
On friday 27 January 2017 Connecting Mobility, TNO and TU Delft will launch and demonstrate the first prototype of SimSmartMobility. 19 partners will also sign a declaration of intent for ongoing development of the prototype. SimSmartMobility is the only simulation platform of its kind anywhere in the world, enabling the simulation of liveability, safety and accessibility effects of innovative mobility solutions. The prototype was developed by the three initiators during the past six months.
