Quantify the future impacts of changes in supply or of urban development


Activity domains

Predicting the future traffic on planned infrastructures

  • Forecasting of travel demand for infrastructure projects and future transport services such as train, tram, BRT, etc.
  • Scenario development to draw a consistent picture for the future of cities or regions, including socio-economic data, transport supply and travel demand
  • Quantitative support of master plans on a urban, regional or national level

Multimodal travel models for agglomerations and régions

  • Development and installation of turn-key models that can be used inside of government agencies of by third parties
  • Integrated approach to model transport supply and travel demand for all modes (walk, bike, public transport, train, car, …)
  • Static and dynamic methods
  • Classic travel demand model architecture – and advanced models (tour-based and activity-based)
  • Integration of spatial data in travel model, for example GIS, OpenStreetMap, navigation networks, time table data, etc.
  • Simulation on the scale of city, agglomeration, region, state, country

Microscopic traffic simulation

  • Simulation of intersections, corridors, city quarters
  • Integration of all modes of transport; realistic representation of the interaction between cars, pedestrians, bus, tram, cyclists etc.
  • Analysis of all kinds of traffic operations strategies (roundabouts, signal timing optimisation, bus/tram priority, adaptive signal timing, ITS, …)
  • Impact evaluation and verification of the effectiveness of operational concepts
  • Comparative performance analysis of alternative layouts and implementation concepts
  • Pedestrian simulation in and around infrastructures such as airports, train stations, sport stadiums

Travel demand analysis and behavioural research

  • Analysis of mobility survey data (travel diary », panel, stated and revealed preferences)
  • Estimation of mathematical market models, for instance discrete choice models
  • Forecasting of futures market shares in transport markets
