The chair of Prof. Friedrich and TomTom are working together on strategic routes. Here are the slides from my seminar presentation about Traffic Phenomena and Modeling.
In this winter semester I'm a guest lecturer at the Beuth Hochschule with a course about traffic data, models and information systems.
The CIVITAS Urban Mobility Tool Inventory has been launched and Movsim is part of it.
We submitted our traffic simulation as exhibition showcase for Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE) organized by the amazing imaginary.org platform for open and interactive mathematics.
At the Wherecamp 2015 conference I spoke about 'The unintelligent swarm' - Traffic oscillations in dynamic navigation applications and how to circumvent them.
Philip Ball wrote a article for the BBC Under the Radar column about the two recently published papers From Drivers to Athletes - Modeling and Simulating Cross-Country Sking Marathons and Crowd Flow Modeling of Athletes in Mass Sports Events -- a Macroscopic Approach.
The English textbook Traffic Flow Dynamics: Data, Models and Simulation has been published by Springer. The book's website is www.traffic-flow-dynamics.org.
The German textbook
The Technology Review physics blog reported about our paper 'Enhanced Intelligent Driver Model to Access the Impact of Driving Strategies on Traffic Capacity' published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A. A preprint is available from arXiv.
Proud, and honored! In October 2009, I received the Best Dissertation Award of the IEEE ITS Society during the ITSC conference in St. Louis, Missouri. The TU Dresden reported about it here.
The Economist published an article Jam today which reports our results in the paper Enhanced Intelligent Driver Model to access the impact of driving strategies on traffic capacity.
We contributed to the exhibition LEVEL GREEN in the Volkswagen Autostadt Wolfsburg with an interactive traffic simulation showcase. The user interface and the graphics have been developed by Art+Com.
I received the Friedrich-List-Preis 2008 for the best Ph.D. dissertation at the Faculty of Transportation and Traffic Sciences of the TU Dresden.
Gabriela Neuhaus made a film about traffic jams.
I received the ITS Award Straßenverkehrstechnik 2008 sponsored by Siemens AG for a working paper in German entitled Datenfusionsalgorithmus zur Verkehrszustandsermittlung und Reisezeitschätzung.
A summary has been published in Siemens ITS Magazine Nachhilfe für Nichtschwimmer, Siemens ITS Magazine 1/2009, p 22-23.
Mark Buchanan published an article 'Why complex systems do better without us' in the New Scientist.
Danielle Parsons published a video 'Can Ants Solve Traffic Jams?' on YouTube.
Wolfgang Richter wrote an article for the Financial Times Deutschland.
Belle Dumé wrote an article Cruise control avoids jams on physicsworld.com about our work.
C. Drösser published a nice article 'Ausgebremst: Die Staumathematik' in the German DIE ZEIT.
