Dynamic clustering, congestion propagation and perimeter control in large-scale urban networks

Lecture | October 12 | 4-5 p.m. | 212 O'Brien Hall

 Nikolas Geroliminis, Urban Transport Systems Laboratory, EPFL

 Institute of Transportation Studies

Abstract: Traffic is a strongly time-variant process and it needs to be studied in the spatiotemporal dimension. Investigating the clustering problem over time help us reveal the hidden information during the process of congestion formation and dissolution. The primary motivation of the research presented in this seminar is to study the spatiotemporal relation of congested links in large...   More >
