    Article
    Open Access
    In recent years, wildfires have caused havoc across the world, which are especially aggravated in certain regions due to climate change. Remote sensing has become a powerful tool for monitoring fires, as well as for measuring ...
  • A city of cities: Measuring how 15-minutes urban accessibility shapes human mobility in Barcelona 

    Graells Garrido, Eduardo; Serra Burriel, Feliu; Rowe, Francisco; Cucchietti, Fernando; Reyes Valenzuela, Patricio Alejandro (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2021-05-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    As cities expand, human mobility has become a central focus of urban planning and policy making to make cities more inclusive and sustainable. Initiatives such as the “15-minutes city” have been put in place to shift the ...
  • A new interior-point approach for large separable convex quadratic two-stage stochastic problems 

    Castro Pérez, Jordi; Lama Zubirán, Paula de la (2020-11-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Two-stage stochastic models give rise to very large optimization problems. Several approaches havebeen devised for efficiently solving them, including interior-point methods (IPMs). However, usingIPMs, the linking columns ...
  • Transport analytics approaches to the dynamic origin-destination estimation problem 

    Ros Roca, Xavier; Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Barceló Bugeda, Jaime; Noëkel, Klaus; Gentile, Guido (2020-10)
    External research report
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Dynamic traffic models require dynamic inputs, and one of the main inputs are the Dynamic Origin-Destinations (OD) matrices describing the variability over time of the trip patterns across the network. The Dynamic OD Matrix ...
  • Investigating the quality of Spiess-like and SPSA approaches for dynamic OD matrix estimation 

    Ros Roca, Xavier; Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Barceló Bugeda, Jaime (2020-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Since OD matrices are not directly observable, indirect procedures have been developed to estimate OD matrices from traffic data. Traffic management must move toward dynamic traffic assignment models because they capture ...
  • Modeling the coronavirus disease 2019 incubation period: impact on quarantine policy 

    Pak, Daewoo; Langohr, Klaus; Ning, Jing; Cortés Martínez, Jordi; Gómez Melis, Guadalupe; Shen, Yu (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-09-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    The incubation period of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is not always observed exactly due to uncertain onset times of infection and disease symptoms. In this paper, we demonstrate how to estimate the distribution of ...

    Arjona Martínez, Jamie; Linares Herreros, María Paz; Casanovas Garcia, Josep; Vázquez Giménez, Juan José (Elsevier, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Urban traffic currently affects the quality of life in cities and metropolitan areas as the problem becomes ever more aggravated by parking issues: congestion increases due to individuals looking for slotsto park their ...
  • A comparison of deep learning methods for urban traffic forecasting using floating car data 

    Vázquez Giménez, Juan José; Arjona Martínez, Jamie; Linares Herreros, María Paz; Casanovas Garcia, Josep (Elsevier, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cities today must address the challenge of sustainable mobility, and traffic state forecasting plays a key role in mitigating traffic congestion in urban areas. For example, predicting path travel time is a crucial issue ...
