  3. 3. MEILI Multiple Day Travel Behaviour Data Collection, Automation and Analysis

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Adrian Corneliu Prelipcean; Yusak Octavius Susilo; Gyözö Gidofalvi; Zachary Pattersson; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multiple day travel diary collection; trajectory segmentation; travel mode destination and purpose inference; travel diary collection system comparison; travel pattern stability and variability over time; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science; Datalogi; Computer Science; Geodesy and Geoinformatics; Geodesi och geoinformatik;

    Abstract : Researchers' pursuit for the better understanding of the dynamics of travel and travel behaviour led to a constant advance in data collection methods. One such data collection method, the travel diary, is a common proxy for travel behaviour and its use has a long history in the transportation research community. READ MORE

  4. 4. Policy Integration for Sustainable Transport Development Case Studies of Two Swedish Regions

    Abstract : It has been argued that for the management of complex issues such as sustainability, which transcend traditional policy sectors and require coordination between several different interests and actors, policymaking depends upon collaboration and integration processes between different sectors and tiers of government. The overall aim of this thesis is therefore to study how and why (or why not) policy integration processes are being developed in regional policymaking and what this means for the achievement of sustainable transport.

  5. 5. Quantitative Assessment of Intelligent Transport Systems for Road Freight Transport

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Gideon Mbiydzenyuy; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transport telematic services; Assessment; Freight transport; Quantitative; Modeling; Decision support systems;

    Abstract : In this thesis, methods for using computer-based models as support tools for assessing Transport Telematic Services (TTSs) are studied. Such assessments provide one way to understand how TTSs can address problems caused by transportation, such as accidents, emissions, and energy consumption. READ MORE
