Cities around the world face rapid changes in their transportation systems with the advances in ICTs. Recent trends include on-demand and shared mobility-modes and automation in public and private transportation systems; these new solutions impact transport industry, infrastructures management as well as political agenda. Focusing on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), new “Smart Mobility” system and real-time network management have been developed as potential solutions to mitigate congestion issues and improve network efficiency.

The programme

This course offers theoretical and practical learning materials for transportation modelling and simulation techniques, with a focus on Smart Mobility and ITS solutions and real-world applications. It also reviews the most well-known traffic simulation models, demand forecasting methods, business, social and political issues and related analytical techniques.

The course includes some case studies with the related excursions in German urban transport companies and startups to give student an insight into the concept of the smart mobilities and how their business models could grow.  These excursions provide practical insight into the actual best practices and challenges for smart urban transportation systems in European cities such as Berlin.
