Development of regional airports : theoretical analyses and case studies by M. N Postorino( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this light, this book gives an overview of the main topics concerning the different aspects of the potential development of regional airports. In particular it covers the economic aspects, the role of low-cost companies, the air demand modelling, the airport, airline and access mode choices, the relationships between hub capacity constraints and regional airports growth, together with an overview of the main tendencies, strategies and policies that have been started in EU and Asia. Examples of different airports throughout the world are presented as test cases with respect to the various aspects."--BOOK JACKET
Regional airports by M. N Postorino( Book )

Regional Airports have become increasingly important elements of the air network system, both as feeders of hub-and-spoke services and as origins or destination of point-to-point services.Congestion at the main hubs and increasing demand for air transportation - both for passengers and freight services - necessitates revaluation of the overall air systems, with regional airports taking an ever expanding role. Congestion nowadays is not only associated with countries such as the USA and those in the EU, but also a variety of other countries with fast developing economies where there is a strong

Road Traffic Models for Validation of Autonomous Vehicle Functionalities by Lu Zhao( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There is a growing interest in autonomous driving as it is expected that fully autonomous vehicles can reduce car accidents and improve overall traffic safety. However, autonomous driving is a complex process combining sensing, perception, prediction, computation, and decision. In addition, the traffic environment is dynamic and involves interactions among road users. Therefore, driving tests are essential to validate the autonomous vehicle's functionalities. Real-world driving tests seem to be a great challenge as fatal accidents cannot be prevented yet. Alternatively, performing driving tests by simulation can reduce time and cost, and avoid potentially dangerous situations. The increasing use of traffic simulation for many studies highlights the importance of a good understanding and modeling of human driving behavior.This thesis mainly focuses on microscopic traffic modelling for human driving models, with the aim of creating, with numerical simulation, a realistic vehicular traffic, which is useful for the validation of autonomous vehicle's features.The main contributions of this thesis consist in :1. Car-collision generation in numerical traffic simulation: I proposed an approach of car-collision generation in numerical traffic simulation considering different car-following behaviors. After the investigation of different driver profiles in a real traffic data-set, I classified three driving profiles, where I distinguished aggressive and inattentive driver profiles from the normal profile. I then proposed to increase the proportion of the two 'extreme' driver profiles (aggressive and inattentive) in the whole traffic population by replacing the normal drivers, to simulate in a traffic simulator, SUMO (Simulation of Urban Mobility), and observe eventually the occurrence of car-collisions. I was able to formulate a relationship between the ratios of these two driver profiles over the entire driver population, and the number of car collisions. This analysis used part of the NGSIM 101 data-set and was validated on another part of the same data-set. I also studied the severity of the generated collisions. I found that collisions involved between an inattentive driver as the leader and an aggressive driver as the follower are the most frequent ones, while collisions between two inattentive drivers are the severest ones.2. Lane change modeling using reinforcement learning: The second work in my PHD is on the lane change modeling, where a reinforcement learning model has been developed. The model aims to imitate real lane change decisions, based on the NGSIM traffic data-set. I proposed a Q-learning model for the human lane change decisions. The model shows good performances in mimicking human decisions with up to 95% of success. Moreover, the model uses numerical traffic simulation (SUMO) to complete the unknown situations in the real data-set. We observed that 13% additional traffic conditions were created by the traffic simulation environment.3. LSTM neural network for human driving behavior: In the third work of my PHD, I proposed an LSTM neural network model for car-following and lane-changing behaviors modeling on road networks. In this work, I proposed different models with different input designs and compared them. The selected model shows good performances on both predicting the longitudinal speed and the lateral position of cars. Moreover, the obtained results show that the selected model outperforms the classical IDM (Intelligent Driver Model) in the accuracy of replicating car-following behavior. The models were implemented on the NGSIM 101 and the HighD traffic data-sets
