Transport Demand Modelling

Transport Demand Modelling

DTU Management - Transport Division - Research - Transport Demand Modelling Section

We model transport demand and assess impacts of transport policies and future infrastructure.

When designing future infrastructure, understanding and modelling of transport demand is key. A central element is estimating social benefits and the derived impacts on infrastructure with respect to traffic flows, accidents, climate effects and emissions.

The Transport Demand Modelling Section provides solutions to planners and politicians for better planning of cities and infrastructure. To do this we focus on a number of key challenges in the modelling of transport demand. This includes: (i) modelling and forecasting of populations and their social and geographical structure; (ii) modelling car ownership and the effect of taxation policies in that respect; (iii) modelling demand and substitution among transport modes and their use; and (iv) modelling derived effects of transport with specific emphasis on traffic safety.

We cover passenger transportation as well as demand for freight and logistics. Our work is not limited to specific transport modes but includes walking, biking, cars, public transport and aviation.

The section is intensely focused on new mobility services including shared car services and autonomous cars and busses.
