Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give knowledge about transport and logistics systems and to introduce the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS).

After the course the students should

  • understand basic definitions, approaches and models used in road traffic planning and for planning and operation of logistics systems
  • be able to analyse logistics systems using logistic tools, with focus on the impact on financial performance of a single company
  • understand the traffic planning process using modeling tools
  • explain how information technology and telecommunication can help satisfying goals in terms of efficiency, safety, customer satisfaction and environmental impact
  • analyse and discuss some ITS-application related to a traffic system or a logistic system

Course content

Traffic systems, traffic planning and control, the 4-stage model, basic traffic flow. Logistics systems and activities, logistics performance in terms of impact on profitability (return on investment), total cost, and customer service. Application areas of intelligent transport systems such as systems for traveller information, traffic management, electronic payment and toll collection, advanced driver assistance and collision avoidance, freight and commercial vehicle operations.
