L’activitat científica del grup, està dividida en dues línies d’actuació principals:

- Anàlisi de costos i l’impacte mediambiental de rutes marítimes a partir d’algoritmes d’optimització (específicament en línies de transport marítim de curta distància), per tal de reduir la congestió viària i la contaminació. L’algoritme d’optimització de rutes considera, entre d’altres, les condicions meteorològiques de la ruta, els costos del vaixell i les emissions contaminants.

- Anàlisi de les característiques de la maniobra de vaixells (distància a la paret del moll, distància de les hèlix al fons, ús de les hèlix de popa o de proa) i obtenció d’una formulació que permeti relacionar les característiques físiques del vaixell amb l’evolució de l’erosió generada en les dàrsenes per poder preveure els danys en les estructures.
