    This study discusses which transit network structure is the best option to serve urban mobility. As a consequence of the evolution of urban form, cities have undergone a process of dispersion of their activities that has ...
  • Bus control strategies in corridors with signalized intersections 

    Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel; Mension, Josep; Aymamí, Josep M; Torres, Laura (2016-10)
    Article

    This paper proposes a new dynamic bus control strategy aimed at reducing the negative effects of time-headway variations on route performance, based on real-time bus tracking data at stops. In routes with high demand, any ...
  • Learnings from urban bus network change 

    Trapote Barreira, César; Robusté Antón, Francesc; Badia Rodríguez, Hugo; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel (Transportation Research Board (TRB), 2016)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a strategy to improve bus service in urban networks that gives equal or better transit service and saves public resources: a win-win strategy. It consists on changing from “direct lines” to mobility centers from ...
  • Social optimal shifts and fares of taxi services 

    Salanova Grau, Josep Maria; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel (Universitat Politècnica de València, 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a mathematical model for supporting the decision and policy making related to the optimal determination of shifts and fares of taxi services in a major city. The model is based on the system’s generalized ...
  • Large-scale microscopic simulation of taxi services: Berlin and Barcelona case studies 

    Maciejewski, Michal; Salanova Grau, Josep Maria; Bischoff, Joschka; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel (Springer, 2016-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper presents research on large-scale microscopic simulation of taxi services in Berlin and Barcelona based on floating car data collected by local taxi fleets. Firstly, Berlin's and Barcelona's taxi markets are shortly ...
  • Ocean–atmosphere–wave characterisation of a wind jet (Ebro shelf, NW Mediterranean Sea) 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Navarro, Jorge; Pallarès López, Elena; Ràfols Bundó, Laura; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Palomares, Ana (University of Thechnology and Agriculture Nicholas Copernicus University, 2016-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this contribution the wind jet dynamics in the northern margin of the Ebro River shelf (NW Mediterranean Sea) are investigated using coupled numerical models. The study area is characterised by persistent and energetic ...
  • Estimación del valor de la información del tiempo de viaje en autopista 

    Soriguera Martí, Francesc (2016-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    De un tiempo a esta parte, un objetivo común de muchos gestores de tráfico es proporcionar información del tiempo de viaje previsto en las infraestructuras que gestionan. Estos esfuerzos responden al hecho que el tiempo ...
  • Designing new models for energy efficiency in urban freight transport for smart cities and its application to the Spanish case 

    Navarro, Carolina; Roca Riu, Mireia; Furió, S.; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel (Elsevier, 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Considering that the transport sector is responsible for 30% of the CO2 emissions in the EU, reaching up to 40% in urban areas, the efforts for technological improvements and innovation in transportation have been increasing ...
  • La investigación y la formación en ingeniería del transporte en España 

    Robusté Antón, Francesc (2015-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Este artículo plasma una “foto” de la docencia e investigación científica actual sobre ingeniería del transporte en España. Tanto la formación a nivel universitario como la investigación en transporte han alcanzado estándares ...
  • Agent based modeling for simulation of taxi services 

    Salanova Grau, Josep Maria; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel; Mitsakis, Evangelos; Stamos, Iraklis (2013-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents an agent based model for simulating taxi services in urban areas. The three operation modes (hailing, stand and dispatching) are modeled and tested in the Sioux Falls network. Taxi models presented in ...
  • Management of on-demand transport services at a urban context: Barcelona case study 

    Cuevas, Victor; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel; Salanova Grau, Josep Maria (2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Urban mobility transport mostly focuses on collective transport based on largely exploited models such as metro, trains or buses. The basis of current public transport is a fix network of both infrastructure and services, ...
