An interactive workshop seeking a deeper understanding and discussion of the issues of dealing with uncertainty in transport forecasting.
This is a must attend for all transport modellers, those who manage transport modelling contracts and those who require transport modelling outputs wishing to improve their craft and engage with one of the best minds in our industry!
2. Tech Forum: Transport Forecasting with Autonomous Vehicles
SMEC offices, Level 6, 480 St Pauls Terrace Fortitude Valley, 5.30pm, Tuesday 22nd of August
A presentation by Pilo on one of the biggest challenges for the transport industry: the effects of Autonomous Vehicles (AV) on th performance of our roads and how they can be modelled and incorporated into our forecasts.
Come along and listen to a fascinating discussion on AV and then have the opportunity to ask Pilo questions you have on AV or modelling in general. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
Please RSVP below for catering purposes for each event.
Dr. Luis (Pilo) Willumsen has over 35 years of experience as a consultant, transport planner and researcher with a distinguished academic career. He is an internationally recognised authority in Transport and Traffic Modelling. Based in Britain since 1975, he was a researcher and lecturer at Leeds University and then at University College London. Luis was a Director of Steer Davies Gleave having joined it full-time in 1989 with a special responsibility for technical development; he left that company to set up his independent practice in December 2009. He has written over 50 technical papers, books and book chapters. He is co-author with Prof. Ortúzar of “Modelling Transport” a book published by Wiley and now in its fourth edition. More recently he has published “Better Traffic and Revenue Forecasting” dealing with the issues of risk and uncertainty in producing projections for transport concessions; both books are available in hard and electronic versions through Amazon and other outlets. His experience covers large transport modelling assignments, leadership of numerous traffic and revenue forecasting studies for Toll Roads, Managed Lanes, Rail, Metro, LRT and BRT projects. These have been undertaken either for the private sector, financial institutions or government sponsors. He has led projects for different types of rapid transit services including the operational design of Transmilenio in Bogotá; he has also experience in Congestion Charging and more widely Transport Planning for large cities and regions.
