The Centre for Transport Studies is pleased to welcome
Dr Milan LovriŠ (Research Fellow, University of Southampton)
to lead a seminar entitled
Designing a Road Traffic Model for the Cross-sectoral Analysis of Future National Infrastructure
to be held
Wednesday 28 March 2018 @ 16:00
Please join us for presentation and discussion at
Room 218, Chadwick Building, Gower St, UCL, London, WC1E 6BT
The proposed strategic model predicts passenger and freight vehicle flows on major UK roads using and elasticity-based simulation approach. The assessment of road capacity utilisation after the network assignment step facilitates the identification of "pinch points" where future infrastructure investments might be targeted. Several policy interventions can be studied with the model, including road expansion, new road development and congestion charging. The model also explicitly considers cross-sectoral interdependencies with other infrastructure networks, primarily with the energy sector where the transport sector is the largest consumer, the digital communications sector, waste management and water. In future extensions, the model will also be able to estimate the environmental footprint and assess the risk and resilience of the transport network. This model has the potential to inform policy makers about the long-term performance of UK road infrastructure, considering a range of possible future scenarios for population growth, technological innovation and climate change.
About the Speakers
Dr Milan LovriŠ is a research fellow in the Transportation Research Group of the University of Southampton, currently working as a transport modeller for the ITRC's project MISTRAL (Multi-Scale Infrastructure Systems Analytics). Milan's research interests lie in agent-based modelling and simulation, with applications ranging from transport and economics to finance. He obtained a PhD in finance from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, after which he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Rotterdam School of Management, a sponsored visiting researcher at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford, and a postdoctoral associate at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology.
About the CTS Seminar Series
The CTS seminar series aims to facilitate discussion on current research topics in the transport field. Seminars are held jointly with our colleagues in the Centre for Transport Studies at Imperial College London. They are usually held on Wednesday afternoons at University College London or Imperial College London.
Seminars are free of charge and open to all interested parties.
