Adapt-it: Analysis and Development of Attractive Public Transport through Information Technology

Project Number: 487

Project Leader: Erik Jenelius

Start Date: 0000-00-00

End Date: 0000-00-00

The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a decision­support system that will facilitate proactive and predictive public transport operations and traveller experience. The proposed decision­support system will implement strategies and algorithms for real-time transit control and operations that are designed to maximize the benefits to travellers, operators and the transport system as a whole. Figure 1.1 below illustrates the framework of the proposed project. The main characteristics and features of the proposed decision-support system are: • A simulation-based modelling capability to predict the short-tenn dynamics of the state of the public transport system under various traffic flow and demand conditions • Methods and tools to estimate the current state of the systems and to predict future states of the public transportation service by taking into consideration both historical data and real-time measurements of the general traffic flows, public transport vehicle
