6 May 2022, registration deadline 15. April 2022, 08:00 | Kick-off Symposium | ETH Zürich, Centre, HG E3. The Center for Sustainable Future Mobility (CSFM) has been established at ETH Zurich in order to promote research on sustainable and future-proof traffic and transport systems.
Zukunftsfähige Verkehrs- und Transportsysteme sind gefragt, die das Ziel unterstützen, die Treibhausgasemissionen bis 2050 auf Netto Null zu senken und erneuerbare Energiequellen zu nutzen. Die ETH-Schulleitung hat der Gründung des neuen «Center for Sustainable Future Mobility» (CSFM) als Kompetenzzentrum der ETH Zürich zugestimmt und eine Anschubfinanzierung für vier More
During public transport disruptions, the performance of the public transport network is degraded due to unexpected events, resulting in delays and inconvenience for passengers. Therefore, the infrastructure managers and operating companies typically generate a new public transport timetable, called disposition timetable, to reduce passengers’ delays, thereby limiting a More
In case of railway delays, train operating companies update the planned timetable to the actual disturbed conditions to keep offering high quality services to travellers. Passengers face an adjusted service, and corrective actions (a disposition timetable). This communication is often assumed to be perfect, complete and immediate, which More
Over the last four years, the Institute for Transportation Planning and Systems (IVT) at ETH Zurich and CITIES at NYU Abu Dhabi have gathered urban traffic data from over 40 cities worldwide, including London, Tokyo, and Zurich. In total, almost 5 billion vehicles covering a combined time span More
In public transport disruptions, a key relation between the services of operating company and passengers’ satisfaction is the disseminated information. This paper proposes rigorous mathematical descriptions to describe the effects of information availability to passengers, including the user equilibrium and non-equilibrium solutions.
23 November 2020 (tentative) | ETH Zurich. As 7 years of SCCER Mobility slowly draw to an end, we invite you to this conference to present a synthesis of the competence center, to review the most relevant research results of each capacity area and conclude with an outlook on More
12.-14. September 2019 | Internationale Bahn- und Mobilitätstagung | ETH Campus in Zürich. Diese Tagung wird erneut ein breites internationales Publikum von Wissenschaftlern, Entscheidungsträgerinnen, und Fachleuten aus den Bereichen Bahn und Mobilität anziehen. Die Tagung wird im bewährten Format weitergeführt: Symposium (Donnerstag), Seminare (Freitag), gefolgt von einem technischen Ausflug More
11. April and 16. May 2019. SCCER Mobility Young Talent Development Program. Seminar series as a platform for young scientists to present their research projects related to Mobility. Further events from the SCCER are also forthcoming, including a Start-up and Entrepreneurship Workshop. Flyer
ETH Zurich has launched the ETH Mobility Initiative together with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) as first partner to further expand research and education in the area of mobility. The call for new partners and proposals is now open. Within this framework, a long-term research programme is being established More
Future demand in public transport is prognosticated to increase significantly. To manage the additional demand in transportation the Swiss Federal Railway SBB has launched the SmartRail 4.0 programme. In the context of SmartRail 4.0 the capacity of the Swiss railway network shall be increased by up to 30%. More
While driving the train, the driver’s primary goals are to ensure safety; maintain the schedule of the service; and if the above are covered, improve energy efficiency of service delivery and passenger comfort, while respecting standard operating procedures set by the railway undertakings. Operating the train in this More
Understanding what to measure, and how to model it, to deliver value in railway predictive maintenance The goal of this project is to shift the current condition assessment and monitoring paradigm for railways. This proposal aims to exploit the power harnessed from on board monitoring data obtained in More
Francesco Corman is professor of Transport systems at the Institute for Transport Planning and Systems (IVT). Previously professor at TU Delft and KU Leuven, he joined ETH in 2017. His main fields of research include operation and control of public transport systems, rail traffic management, logistics and maintenance.
Reducing railway delays, their variability and propagation, considering operations as stochastic processes, explicitly considering current and possible future delays The goal of this project is to develop a set of interconnected algorithmic approaches that improve railway operations by real-time traffic control, reducing delays, their variability, and their propagation More
You missed this NSL colloquium on 14 May? The film recording is now online! Logistics and mobility of goods is facing relevant substantial challenges, which are mostly invisible to users, differently from the challenges of personal mobility, such as delays, traffic jams, etc, which we witness daily.
