Dr. Gonçalo Correia is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Transport & Planning at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. His main research interest is in the planning and operations of transport systems in urban environments with the objective of sustainable development. He focuses particularly on studying the use of Transport Demand Management strategies, innovative services, and technologies, such as ridesharing, carsharing and automated vehicles, to tackle urban congestion, which he studies using mainly operations research (mathematical optimization and simulation), data-driven AI methods and behavior modeling. At TU Delft he is specifically looking at the impacts of automated driving on mobility and urban development. He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Advanced Transportation (Wiley-Hindawi), associate editor of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Magazine, the IEEE Open Journal on ITS and he is part of the editorial board of several international journals including Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Reviews, and Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies. He has taught more than 12 courses in bachelor, master and Ph.D. programs both in Portugal and the Netherlands in the fields of operations research, transport modeling, and transport planning. He is an invited Lecturer at Beijing Jiao Tong University in China. He advises several companies and institutions on the future of mobility and he is an international speaker on the impacts of mobility innovations. Gonçalo co-directs the hEAT lab (research on electric and automated transport) that is part of the Department of Transport & Planning at TU Delft (https://www.tudelft.nl/citg/
Title of the talk: Planning for Public Transport with Automated Vehicles
Short abstract of the talk:
In this keynote, Gonçalo will talk about the usage of Automated vehicles as public transport (PT). He will discuss the possible applications, and associated benefits but also the challenges in the implementation of such technology as part of Public Transport networks. Mode choice, experience, preferences, and system operations will all be addressed in this comprehensive presentation. The focus will be given to dutch case studies in which the hEAT lab (Research on Electric and Automated Transport) is participating.
