Cities around the world face rapid changes in their transportation systems with the advances in ICTs. Recent trends include on-demand and shared mobility-modes and automation in public and private transportation systems; these new solutions impact transport industry, infrastructures management as well as political agenda. Focusing on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), new “Smart Mobility” system and real-time network management have been developed as potential solutions to mitigate congestion issues and improve network efficiency.

This course offers theoretical and practical learning materials for transportation modelling and simulation techniques, with a focus on Smart Mobility and ITS solutions and real-world applications.

This course reviews the most well-known mobility behavior simulation models, demand forecasting methods, business, social and political issues and related analytical techniques.

After a general overview about sustainable and smart transportation (including business models, technical and urban design aspects), the course will allow participants to get innovative methods so to model Smart cities current and future solutions.
