Lecture by Henrik Becker, research assistant, Institute for Transport Planning and Systems, ETH Zurich

Thursday, June 29, 6 p.m., ETH Zurich Zentrum campus, ETZ E 9, lecture

The growing popularity of shared vehicle systems creates opportunities to rethink the current auto-centered transportation system moving toward more sustainable and less energy hungry forms of mobility. However, the search for such solutions is a challenge for researchers of many different disciplines because of the considerable complexity of our transportation systems and the need to take into account several aspects – economy, human behavior, technology are among the most important – which influence its operations. The lecture reports on an ongoing project, which tackles these issues using an agent-based simulation approach.

Prior registration is not necessary.

All interested people are welcome to attend this lecture, which is part of the European Campus of Excellence summer school 2017 on „Energy Systems in Transition and Sustainable Mobility“. SCCER Mobility was involved in organizing the summer school and designing its program. Various SCCER Mobility members will be facilitating the activities of this 3-week course.
